#31 – DOG STUCK IN MUD – 20/12/2020

BARB’s volunteers were contacted by a walker to help a couple rescue their dog stuck in mud on Burnham beach.
Our team, who were already at our seafront station for training, contacted the Coastguard to alert them and we were then tasked by them to go on foot to the area of mud south of the jetty to ensure that the couple were safe, before we then coaxed the dog to safety.
The relieved couple thanked our crew for their help. The Coastguard team also arrived and checked the couple were safe. After a wash down, the couple headed home with their dog for a warm-up and our crew resumed their training.
Remember if you have concerns for someone or something along the coast, don’t hesitate, dial 999 and ask for the Coastguard.
