Angle-lifeboat-and-Coastguards-in-rescue-of-cliff-fall-dog

Byline: RNLI Angle’s all weather lifeboat was alerted on Sunday (February 8) to assist in the recovery of a dog that had fallen over the cliff at West Angle Bay.
Page Content: It was the first call-out of the year for the Tamar class lifeboat Mark Mason, which was launched shortly before 3pm. She reached the scene in 5 minutes and found that the local Auxiliary Coastguards had located and repositioned the dog to the base of the cliffs.

The lifeboat’s Y Boat was launched and went ashore at West Angle beach to collect the owner in order to calm the dog down due to its ordeal.

At the base of the cliffs, the dog and the Coastguard ‘cliff man’ were recovered and, with the animal’s owner, were landed safely on West Angle beach.

The Y Boat then returned to the lifeboat, which was stood down at 3.29pm to return to her station for rehousing at 3.42pm.
