An injured 120 pounds Saint-Bernard dog was rescued after a trip with her owners on Scafell Pike, the tallest mountain in England, 3,209 feet above sea level, located in the Lake District National Park in Cumbria.
Daisy was accompanying her humans down the peak in northwest England on Friday evening when she suddenly collapsed. Daisy was displaying signs of pain in her rear legs and was refusing to move. The owners didn’t know what to do to shift their enormous beast and phoned Cumbria Police who called in Wasdale MRT.A mountain rescue crew of volunteers was needed. The dog cooperated. The mountain rescue team spent nearly ﬁve hours rescuing Daisy. She is reported to be in good condition after the mountain rescue and in “her usual high spirits.”They carried Daisy on a stretcher over obstacles, including a waterfall.Saint Bernards are known for helping to rescue distressed travelers in the mountains.
The rescue team said: “Our members didn’t need to think twice about mobilising and deploying to help retrieve Daisy off England’s highest mountain.” A spokesperson for MRT told media it was not unusual for the team to be called to the aid of “canine casualties”, though this was the ﬁrst time a St Bernard needed help.
