Rescue team carries 190-pound dog from Utah canyon trail to safety
A 190-pound mastiff needed a bunch of helping hands to get him down a hiking trail in Utah on Sunday night.
A four-hour operation by the Salt Lake County Sheriff's Search and Rescue team helped bring the 3-year-old dog named Floyd to safety. Rescue workers carried the human-sized canine on a litter usually used for people.
The organization wrote that it was alerted to the situation at 6:30 p.m. after multiple hikers had called to report that the owner, who has not been identified, was stranded with his dog on Grandeur Peak in Millcreek Canyon.
A group of rescue workers then helped carry the injured pooch down the mountain by 10:30 p.m.
"Floyd was a good boy and was happy to be assisted," the Search and Rescue team wrote on Facebook. "Hopefully, Floyd will be up and hiking again soon!"
