Volunteers rescuing Newfoundland dog from mountain ledge

ENUMCLAW — Volunteers have responded to help rescue a Newfoundland dog that fell over a cliff near Enumclaw and landed on a ledge.

The Washington Animal Response Team tweeted Tuesday evening that the dog had been strapped to a litter and was being lifted up the cliff. A volunteer rigged in a harness had been lowered to the dog.

KING-TV reports that Seattle Mountain Rescue and another King County volunteer team also responded to help save “Moses.”

The Newfoundland Club of Seattle says Moses was lost Saturday in the Mud Mountain Recreation Area while hiking near the Rim Trail. He was located Tuesday.

The King County sheriff’s office says Moses was on a ledge, 175 feet down the mountain. A sheriff’s office spokeswoman said he didn’t appear to be injured.

Moses reportedly is trained to rescue swimmers in distress.
