The animals, which lacked an identification microchip, were exhausted by not being able to climb the more than three meters of slope
The Civil Guard of the Region of Murcia developed an action in the municipality of Lorca that culminated in the rescue of two adult dogs that had fallen to a depth of more than three meters in an abandoned irrigation pond.
The action began when the Benemérita was alerted by a hiker to the situation of both animals, one a German shepherd and the other a mestizo, who were inside an irrigation pond in the area of the old brick factory in La Torrecilla, municipality of Lorca.
The Civil Guard of Puerto Lumbreras went to the place where they found the dogs exhausted and with signs of dehydration, one of them, with one of its legs amputated, which made it even more difficult for him to climb the drop of more than three meters to reach the surface.
In view of the impossibility of the animals leaving by their own means, the civil guards ordered their rescue, lowering one of them to the raft to place a rope around their body. In this way, both were raised in a joint maneuver, one of the agents pulling the rope, while the other accompanied and held the animals to facilitate their ascent without risk.
After the rescue, it was found that both lacked the electronic identification implant, or other elements that could facilitate the identification of their owners, which was reported to the Lorca Local Police.
