Dog Rescued from Douglas Preserve Cliff
Source: Santa Barbara City Fire Department
At approximately 11:30 am, Santa Barbara City Fire responded to the Douglas Preserve to rescue a dog that fell off the cliff and was stranded on a ledge 125 feet down. Fire crews set up a rope system and sent a firefighter with a harness down the cliff to rescue the stranded dog. Both the firefighter and dog were lowered to the beach below. The owner was reunited with the dog who did not appear to have any injuries.
Santa Barbara City Fire would like to remind everyone to use caution when walking your dog in the Douglas Preserve and use a leash when walking on the trail next to the edge of the cliff.
