Dog makes a snippy dash

Pilbara News - - News - Ali­cia Per­era

Kar­ratha was the site of a dar­ing an­i­mal res­cue mis­sion last Thurs­day when rangers and a team from an­i­mal shel­ter SAFE tracked down a de­ter­mined dog on the run.

Onslow dog Penny was stay­ing in town for a week to be de­sexed with SAFE, but she made a break for it when her fos­ter carer turned his back for a mo­ment on Thurs­day morn­ing.

Penny led SAFE vol­un­teers Erin Muir and Jesse Van­bakkum and Kar­ratha rangers Dar­rell Hutchens and Sh­eryl Thoma­son on a chase through much of Kar­ratha, run­ning along Bal­moral Road, into bush­land and across the length of the new hospi­tal con­struc­tion site be­fore they fi­nally cor­nered her.

Miss Muir and Miss Van­bakkum crawled un­der fences and found them­selves waist-deep in sand on the con­struc­tion site in their ded­i­ca­tion to get to Penny.

Es­caped dogs some­times take rangers days to track down and Penny was lucky to be found so soon. She was re­turned to fos­ter care for the rest for the week.
