Horse Rescue by Shropshire Firefighters

British firefighters are regularly called out for animal rescue including the rescue of a horse. Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service received a call to a horse stuck in a ditch. The horse, called Genie had slipped down into the trench but luckily the rider escaped without injury. A fire crew from Baschurch was mobilised along with the specialist large animal rescue team from Wellington Fire station.

Baschurch crews made the scene safe and ensured a vet was on route, ready for the arrival of the specialist team. SFRS crews then worked alongside each other and the Vet for around 1hour to successfully rescue Genie from the ditch.

The crew used specialist equipment including the Hi-ab crane from the rescue tender which is based at Wellington. Genie was then taken home where she is recovering with a few bruises.
