On Saturday 18, March Western Beacons Mountain Rescue Team were called out to help rescue a dog that had fallen 60 metres (200 ft) down the gulley on Fan Brycheiniog.

A passing walker with another dog and its owner alerted Heddlu Dyfed-Powys Police to the situation.

Western Beacons Mountain Rescue Team responded immediately to the callout.

On route they requested helicopter assistance from Maritime and Coastguard Agency with lifting team members and rope rescue equipment to the top of the mountain, saving vital time in getting to the humans and dogs who were suffering from the cold.

They used 400 metres of rope and a mountain stretcher to lower the dog to the shore of Llyn y Fan Fawr. 

The dog was wrapped in a Blizzard Blanket and heat pack as the team then carried the pet on the stretcher three kilometres back to the road.

The dog was then transported to a vet.

A spokesperson for Western Beacons Mountain Rescue Team said: "We have been advised today that the dog will recover fully given time. We wish the dog a speedy recovery."
