According to her rescuers, Daisy, a St. Bernard, feels a little ashamed after being the victim of a five-hour rescue operation during her descent from England’s highest mountain. The 121-pound dog came from a breed renowned for its alpine rescue abilities. On the other hand, Daisy needed saving after collapsing while falling from the mountain of Scafell Pike in England’s northwest during a trek with her owners on Friday.
In a Facebook post, the Wasdale Mountain Rescue Team said she was in pain in her back legs and refused to walk. Daisy’s owners alerted police, and they dispatched a 16-person rescue team to get her home safely, with the assistance of local veterinarians. The group wrote that when they arrived at their destination, they presented themselves to Daisy with caution so they would not cause her any further anxiety.
After using dog treats, two members were able to diagnose her condition and prescribe analgesia for her pain. The rescue team said that after some encouragement, more treats, and adjustment of the stretcher to make it more dog-friendly, they were able to transport St. Bernard down from the mountain on a rescue litter. They said that it is almost close to how they would evacuate a person.
The rescue went off without a hitch, thanks to Daisy’s good behavior and cooperation. According to the rescue team, she has since had a good night’s sleep, snoring a bit more than usual, but is back to her usual happy mood this morning. They went on to say that she felt terrible and ashamed over sullying the image of her cousins jumping around the Alpine snows with bottles of brandy slung across their necks.
