Fire Call, 12th of October, Horse rescue, Princehall, Princetown

Currently we get little feed back from people reading the blog. If you have any questions, suggestions or comments please use the facility below.

At 10:00 on the 12th of October, appliances from Princetown and Yelverton with Yelvertons 4×4 and theĀ Specialist Rescue team from Camels Head were called to a horse stuck in a bog at Princehall, Princetown. Yelverton arrived at the scene first and secured the animal until the specialist Rescue team arrived. Initially the crews attempted to pull the horse clear using a rope winch and strops connected to a tractor a local farmer had brought along to help. The horse remain stranded so once a Tele handler arrived, again provided by a local land owner, the horse was lifted and pulled to firm ground at the same time, which, with a little help from the horse, finally freed the animal. Our thanks to the local community for turning out and helping.
