Hamden Firefighters rescue dog stranded on cliff at West Rock Ridge State Park
Hamden and Woodbridge firefighters were called to West Rock Ridge State Park on Saturday to rescue the dog.
Rescuers say the dog could not be reached safely from below, so a Hamden firefighter was lowered over the edge. They say it took some time for him to gain the dog’s trust and take hold of it.
Once the firefighter had secured the dog, they were lowered to other firefighters waiting below.
Officials say the dog suffered minor injuries. It’s not clear how it became stranded.
