Castlegar RCMP, Castlegar Fire Dept and Ootischenia Fire Dept. all worked together to rescue an American Bulldog named “Daisy” who was trapped in the rocks below the Old Brilliant Suspension Bridge just after 2 p.m. today.
Castlegar FD received a call from the Castlegar RCMP that Daisy was trapped. Upon arrival at the old bridge, it was determined the dog was located outside the City boundary in Ootischenia Fire department’s area. Castlegar firefighters then performed a rope rescue with the help of Ootischenia firefighters. The dog was brought up to her owners unharmed. Everyone was happy.
