Rescuers at the scene

A dog was plucked from a crag by rescuers after spending a week stuck on a Snowdonia mountainside.

Aberglaslyn Mountain Rescue Team was called out at 9am today, Saturday, to help get a foxhound from crags on Trwyn y Graig, near Nantlle.

Corris, an 18-month-old hound, got stuck on steep ground on the flanks of the 734m (ft) peak while working with its owners last Sunday.

Attempts by them to reach her on a ledge were unsuccessful, and the team’s help was requested.

An Aberglaslyn MRT spokesperson said: “Several team members arrived to assist, and made short work of setting up a technical rope rescue system to effect the rescue of the dog.

“A team member then abseiled down the crag towards the stricken dog, and was able to reach the ledge where she had spent the last six cold and lonely nights.

“After some enticing with a few digestives and several attempts to bite her rescuer, Corris was evacuated from the crag safe and well. She did not have any injuries, and was in good spirits as she was returned to her grateful owners.”

The rescue ended at 1pm.
