Dog was returned to its ‘happy owner.’




Firefighters in Santa Barbara County, CA, rescued a dog that fell 75 feet from a cliff.

The incident occurred Sunday morning at Mesa Bluffs, KSBY-TV reports.

The Santa Barbara County Fire Department responded after receiving reports at 9:46 a.m. They arrived to find that the dog had fallen 75 feet or more.

A firefighter went over the side of the cliff and rescued the dog using a high-angle rope system, bringing the pooch to the bottom of the bluff, according to a tweet from Daniel Bertucelli, spokesman for the fire department.

The dog was returned to its “happy owner,” Bertucelli said.
