CALL OUT: 420 Calf in Mine Shaft

The team were contacted by a couple of local cavers who had themselves been contacted by a farmer friend. The farmer was missing a week old calf, but had acquired a newly collapsed mine shaft in his field……..
Four team members attended and set up equipment so the shaft could be safely descended, and also hauling equipment in case it was needed.
The calf was located fit and well at the bottom of the shaft. She was manhandled up a rubble slope and then persuaded into a builders bag for the trip up the vertical shaft. Once freed she ran off happily to re-join her mother, none the worse for her adventure underground!
Thanks to the local cavers who assisted DCRO and also the farmer and his friend for their help, and the post rescue brews and biscuits. Much appreciated by all!
