“He was funny because I couldn’t see her without my binoculars, and he said he knew the ‘dot’ was an animal because he’s never seen that dot there before.”
One day, while an old guy sipped his coffee in the morning sun in front of his motorbike store, he caught sight of something peculiar on a cliff in the distance. The Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region (HSPPR) was notified, and two animal law enforcement officers were dispatched to investigate when he immediately realized that the little speck he was seeing was indeed a stranded animal in need of assistance.
The man never had any question that the dog was there and severely needed assistance, even though the cops required a little additional aid to see her.
Officer Kailie Barker described the man as “funny” and stated, “He said he knew the ‘dot’ was an animal because he’s never seen that dot there. I couldn’t see her without my binoculars.”
A narrow ledge approximately 150 feet above a brook was where the dog was impaled. They immediately began formulating a strategy to save her because they had no idea how long she had been there.
It took two and a half hours in all to be able to determine her specific location, figure out how to get to her, gather the necessary tools, and create a precise strategy, according to Barker.
When the cops were prepared, Barker rappelled down to the stranded dog, who was overjoyed that someone had finally come to save her. The officers were able to secure some climbing equipment.
She was clearly terrified. When she first noticed us, she was trying to crawl towards us while pressing her body firmly into the ground, Barker said. She was also rapidly waving her tail. She continued attempting, but the soil kept slipping out from beneath her. She attempted creeping toward me once again while she and I were seated on the cliffside. She started licking my hands and face until I eventually approached her.
They read the dog’s collar after bringing her to safety and learned her name was Jessie Lee. They returned her to HSPPR, where staff members were able to locate her family’s contact details. She had really been gone for two weeks when she was discovered just a few blocks from her house. Her family had been looking for her every day, and they were ecstatic that someone had located her.
Fortunately, Jessie Lee’s adventure left her unharmed, and soon after being rescued she was able to return home to her family. Thanks to the cops who saved her and the person who realized that the faint dot in the distance was actually a dog, it was the ideal happy ending.
