Sheep rescued from 80-metre high cliff

Sheep rescue SM Farm

RSPCA specialist teams have spent the past few days attempting to rescue 60 sheep scattered across the face of an 80-metre high cliff at Mathry, Pembrokeshire, Wales.

The animals, believed to have been frightened over the edge by a dog, are in small groups.

The RSPCA was joined by officers from Mid and West Fire & Rescue Service’s rope rescue teams and Dyfed Powys Police’s rural crime team. The rescue has involved officers abseiling down the seacliff, with the sheep rescued and bagged, and brought back to safety.

Other sheep lower down the cliff have been rescued by officers on the boat rescue team from the sea.

The operation is expected to go on for several more days.
