Fire crew attempt to reach stricken dog

02:27, Jun 15 2014

Christchurch firefighters are currently carrying out a rescue operation - not for a cat stuck up a tree, but a dog stuck on a ledge.

The dog has been caught on a part of the Halswell Quarry with seemingly no way down but through the fire service.

Fire communications said the rescue was still underway with personnel making their way on foot to the distressed pooch.

On Friday Navy officers rescued a pooch dubbed "dog on a log" who was found on a floating log near Great Barrier Island.
