Rescue a dog from the swamp with the help of a sausage attached to a drone

Volunteers have managed to rescue a dog stranded in a dangerous swamp in the Emsworth region of England. After three days of unsuccessful attempts, the rescue team came up with the idea of ​​tying the sausage to a rope suspended from a drone to get the animal out of harm’s way.

The operation you performed DDSI (Denmead Drone Search and Rescue), an English organization specializing in the search and rescue of missing animals. Millie, a 3-year-old Jack Russell Webbett, was attracted to the sausage and followed the drone 300m to safety.

Millie’s adventure began on day thirteen when she was out with her teacher in Hampshire, southern England. Unbeknownst to the woman, the dog broke its leash and ran off until it landed in a swampy area on the outskirts of Emsworth. An area known for its dangers and prone to sudden flooding.

Terrified, Mielle fled to a swamp in the Emsworth area where she was stranded.

As soon as she noticed the escape, Millie’s owner contacted DDSI, who immediately began searching to try to locate and rescue the dog. The Coast Guard, firefighters and police were also called to help with the rescue operation.

But because she was scared, all the efforts she had made to save her for three days seemed to make the situation worse. The dog moved away from the rescue area.

It was described in a post on the Facebook social networking team website.

“After checking the drone’s regulations and technical specifications, we found that we could use about 170 grams of weight on the drone, so we attached a 56-gram sausage to it. We did a risk assessment in the area and then took the drone to where Millie was.”

“A neighbor who lived on the beach came out and said she would cook us sausages. She was under a lot of pressure and must have felt like she had the world on her shoulders,” he told CNN. Stephanie Denise, 20, volunteers at DDSI. “But of course the sausage has to be very tasty.”

The team wrote on Facebook: “We didn’t think it would work, but it did. We were able to drag Mili 300m to a safe area. Luckily she stayed in that area until we could stop her from sinking.” .

The dog, already at home, accompanied by its owner, has had veterinary care, has been treated and is in good health.
