Dramatic dog rescue

In a dramatic two-hour rescue operation, Willem Nel, SPCA members, the fire brigade and people walking past, sprang into action and saved two dogs stranded on a narrow ledge on the krantz.

The team had been alerted to the animals’ plight after Talk of the Town reporter Lebo Tlou posted a plea for help on the Talk of the Town Facebook group at about mid-day on Saturday.

Using long ladders, the rescuers scaled the sheer cliff to reach the stranded animals and eventually coax them to safety.
