The first rescue of 2018 is of the four-legged variety

On January 6th, just after 4:00PM, The Altadena Mountain Rescue Team responded to rescue a dog that had fallen into a canyon above Altadena.  A hiker and her friend were hiking on the Fire Break Trail when their dog slipped and fell 75 feet down off the trail into a steep canyon approximately 100 feet north of the power lines.  

Altadena Mountain Rescue Team members hiked into the area, and after approximately 45 minutes of searching, located Oscar the dog, a 14 y/o terrier.  Team members used ropes to raise the dog and rescuer back onto the trail.  

The hiker, 23 year old female resident of Altadena and Oscar were not injured and were driven to their residence in Altadena. The hiker’s friend, 23 year old female resident of New York was able to hike out to her personal vehicle. This incident concluded at 7:15PM.
