Hours later, a man was out walking near a ravine when suddenly, he spotted something white and furry huddled deep down in the ravine. He leaned in for a closer look — and quickly realized it was a dog, desperately in need of help. Poor Purdy had somehow gotten herself stuck down there, and had no idea how to get out on her own.
Not knowing what to do, the man contacted the RSPCA in hopes that someone there would be able to help. Inspector Sarah Bagley drove out to the ravine and began trying to figure out the best way to get Purdy out of there, but unfortunately, it wasn’t at all an easy task.
“It was pretty tricky to get her out of there and I tried all sorts [of things],” Bagley said in a press release. “I attempted to encourage her up the embankment but it was just too steep, and when I went to pick her up she wanted to run away.”
