Horse rescued from ravine by firefighters

MidiLibre/Scoop, May 17

A horse slipped into a ravine at Codalet, Pyrénées-Orientales earlier this week.

The horse was on the edge of the DR27 between Codalet and Taurinya, near Perpignan, when she slipped and got herself trapped under a concrete block.

The owner alerted the firefighters, but the owner himself had been alerted by another horse! The horse had pleaded and pushed the owner to where the other horse was trapped.

With the help of a vet who tranquillised the trapped horse, the firefighters managed to get it out after an operation that lasted two hours.

A firefighter said “I’ve never known a horse alert us before, this is most unusual.”
