After summitting Mount Ellinor in the Olympics last week, this couple's dog leaped off the side of the mountain after a goat, falling down a sheer cliff. The couple wasn't able to look over to see if the dog was alright, and had no means to rappel down to search for her. A call came out on Twitter to see if anyone in the area of the Olympic Mountains would be willing to rappel down to see if their dog was ok.
I hadn't heard anything until this article came out today.
Volunteers from Olympic Mountain Rescue scheduled a 'training mission' and rappelled down to try and locate the dog. She was lying on a ledge on the side of the cliff, with only an injured leg.
