St Bernard rescued from England's highest mountain

St Bernard rescued from England's highest mountain”

Sixteen volunteers from Wasdale mountain rescue team take turns to carry 121lb (55kg) St Bernard dog, Daisy from England's highest peak, Scafell Pike, Sunday July 26, 2020.

The Great St Bernard Hospice in Switzerland specifically trained and developed the sturdy breed to cross snow drifts to retrieve those in distress, although the brandy barrel appears to have been a fictional addition to the dog's image. The mountain rescue team spent almost five hours rescuing Daisy, who had collapsed Friday evening while descending the mountain with her owners.

No details have been released about Daisy's owner.

They have been typically depicted carrying a brandy barrel round their necks for anyone they rescue, but there is no evidence this actually happened.

Rescue workers said Daisy was displaying signs of pain in her rear legs and was refusing to move. The four-year-old was walking with her new owners down Scafell Pike in northwest England's Lake District.

It was crucial to get her on to a stretcher as promptly as probable since the weather was due to deteriorate as the working day went on. They also packed a few treats to help settle her down.

Authorities said that after seeking advice on pain relief, they were able to obtain a "little persuasion" from Daisy with "many" treats, and managed to administer some pain relief for the trip. From there on, apart from the odd little adjustment, the evacuation was found to be not that much different to a normal adult evacuation which is, of course, the bread and butter of our team, which we have done hundreds of times before'.

Daisy had a "tough commence in daily life", the crew said, and was rescued by her latest entrepreneurs a number of months in the past.

"Wasdale Mountain Rescue Team would like to thank both West Lakeland Veterinary Group and Galemire Veterinary Hospital who got in touch and gave invaluable advice and support".

Friday's operation, which involved 16 members of the MRT, took five hours as rescuers carried Daisy on a stretcher over obstacles including a waterfall.

The rescue mission lasted almost five hours.
