In this amazing video shot by and featuring Nathan hodges, Daniel hodges and Dylan Thomas ,you can a see that despite being mid afternoon in sunshine, just how difficult is was to see our little black Cherry in the hole she had fallen into, this hole had already been searched before the drone spotted her heat signiture and we hadn’t seen her.
A RSPCA grasper Is used to help bring Cherry to safety and make sure she didn’t disappear further down any unseen hole.
RSPCA inspector Izzi Hignell, who worked on the rescue, said: “We are so relieved that Cherry was found safe and well, and is now back with her family.
“This was a truly remarkable rescue effort, which shows the strength of feeling across the community towards animals, and the importance people attach to keeping them safe.
We worked with so many agencies to help Cherry, and the public response to the campaign to find her is heartening and the ongoing interest simply overwhelming.
