Dog Rescue at Pecoy Notch

Unread post by dave »

Town of Hunter in Greene County

Dog Rescued:
On June 25 at 9:30 p.m., Greene County 911 received a call from a hiker on the Pecoy Notch trail trying to find his friends to help with their injured dog. Hunter Police, Green County Sheriff's Office, and an NYSP Trooper drove to the trailhead and confirmed the presence of the subject's vehicle. At 10:30 p.m., Forest Ranger Gullen hiked in and located the subjects nearly two miles up the trail. The 135-pound Bernese mountain dog was unable to walk. Using a camping hammock as an improvised stretcher, Ranger Gullen and the group carried the dog toward the trailhead. At 11 p.m., Ranger Jackson arrived to help with the remaining mile of the carry out. The group reached the trailhead at approximately 2 a.m.

The Pecoy Notch Trail runs up to the Devil's Path between Sugarloaf Mountain and Twin Mountain.
