It was a lucky day for a 70 pound collie after he found himself stuck on a ledge on Shelton's Hastine Island. On Saturday, the dog named "Tundra" was rescued and safely lowered 100 feet to the ground with the expert help of the Central Mason Fire and EMS.
According to KomoNews.com, late Saturday afternoon, the border collie was chasing another animal as collies like to do, but Tundra, in his obvious excitement, failed to properly navigate his path as he accidentally fell off a cliff. Down he went for 30 feet. Fortunately the friendly canine landed on a ledge; 100 feet from the bottom.
Deputies and the Central Mason Fire District were called to the rescue. A rope was tied around Tundra, and slowly the dog was lowered to the ground.
Detective William Adam of the Mason County Sheriff's Office said Tundra was not hurt and "acting very happy toward his rescuers."
Thanks guys for helping Tundra. Everyone loves a happy ending.
