This is the moment a goat stuck for over a week on a tiny ledge was rescued by heroic volunteers.
The goat had been grazing at the top of the hill when she lost his footing and slipped down the almost vertical cliff face.
A huge rescue attempt was launched, with volunteers abseiling down the side of the cliff.
Assisted by spotters sat in a boat on the lake below, they slowly winched their way down making sure not to dislodge any rocks onto the goat below.
After a nail-biting few minutes in which the goat gets scared and begins to move from the safety of her tiny ledge, a rescuer manages to corner her.
Using a net, he gently places it over her, before being hoisted. Back to the top.
There, the goat was checked over before being released unharmed.
Dawn William, director of Blue Cross Rescues, which is based in Tamil Nadu, India, said: “Formerly a week this goat was stuck while grazing on a hilltop and found her way into a steep cliff.
“We were alerted to her predicament only by locals who claimed the goat was crying for help throughout the night and disturbing their sleep.
“As soon as morning came, we disputed the Blue Cross of India’s technical rescue team of vulunteers, who managed to safely rescue and reunite the goat with her owners.”
