Incident report

Whilst fundraising in Buxton on Bank Holiday Monday, the team was called to recover a dog which had jumped over a bridge wall on the Monsal Trail near to the Rusher Cutting.

The dog had fallen some 30 metres into Chee Dale and was lying injured on a ledge. Whilst en-route we were informed the dog had succumbed to its injuries and passed away.

Two climbers had recovered the dog to the Monsal Trail by the time we arrived, leaving us to transport the dog and its owners to their car at Wye Dale for onward journey home.
