Missing Dog Rescued From Cliff By Officer Barker


A missing dog has been reunited with its family – thanks to a daring cliffside rescue in Colorado Springs.

The dog was found stuck on a cliff overlooking Fountain Creek. Two officers with the Humane Society Animal Law Enforcement team attempted to rescue her by rappelling down the cliff in a harness.

The woman – who fittingly is named Officer Barker – had to act fast when the ground began to give out beneath the pup. Fortunately, she was able to grab it with a catchpole.

The dog, Jessie Lee, was reunited with her owners – who had been searching every day for the last two weeks.

Have you ever had a pet escape? How long did it take to find it?
