Incident report

Third call to a crag-bound standed animal in just over a week.  As members were packing up from the Roaches call-out another request was received from a farmer in the Goyt Valley relating to a sheep stranded on the water’s edge under a vertical crag.  When team members arrived they found the animal in exactly the same spot as the previous animal rescue. 

Two team members were lowered to secure the sheep in a make-shift harness before all were hauled back to the top.  The sheep was released unharmed.
