Dog rescue in the 1200 Block of Shoreline Drive.
Engine 6 and Harbor Patrol responding.
Harbor Patrol is on Boat 2.. The dog is West of the bathrooms.
The dog is about 150 Yards East of thousand steps.
Engine 6 is on scene.
Rescue one to assist...
The dog is on the beach...
With a tide coming in alittle bit.
Sounds like Harbor Patrol says the dog is doing laps.
Wading into a foot of water to rescue the dog.
Switching to tac 4...
Dogs fine they just got to pick him up.
Not sure if they got the dog yet still going to tac 4 ...
Engine 6 back in service.
While l am very happy that the dog was rescued, it appears the owner was irresponsible. It took a harbor patrol boat and two firemen, one on the what was there of the beach and one on the cliff. The tide was high, almost to 6 feet, so virtually no beach. The dog must have been off leash, ran under the fence and down the cliff. What a waste of City resources because of a careless pet owner. She should be cited.
I’ve seen dogs tear down what look like unnavigable cliffs at Wilcox and make their way right back up. I wonder how the dog would have fared had it been left to its own devices.
Owner needs to pay for cost of assistance to off-leash dog if it's not an off-leash park. Money or work it off.
That entire beach is off-leash. Silly to assume the dog came from up top/the park. ----------Too bad no authorities came along on Wednesday to ticket the two young women sitting on wrong side of fence, right at bluff's edge, not far from 1,000 steps. Those two women were definitely Darwin candidates.
“Silly to assume”? No assumptions were made. I was there when the dog owner called Fire Department from Shoreline Park. It was high tide; There was no beach, just a foot of rocks at most, and the tide was coming in further. And yes, dog climbed under the fence.
