RÚV reports that North Iceland’s search and rescue team was called out last night, July 5, to respond to a dog who had fallen off a cliff.
The dog had been on a walk with its owner near Gönguskarðsá near Skagafjörður in Northern Iceland when it fell off a cliff and lost consciousness. The owner called the search and rescue service, which responded to the incident. Accompanying the search and rescue team was a veterinarian. After some time, the dog recovered and regained consciousness.
Landsbjörg is the search and rescue service for Iceland. It is a nonprofit, volunteer-based organization which provides search and rescue for Icelanders and tourists alike.
