Emergency workers from the Hamden Fire Department was deployed on Saturday morning to take part in a multi-agency rescue operation for a pit bull mix. 

The dog has somehow found its way through West Rock Ridge State Park and became stranded on a cliff.  Since there was no way to reach the animal from the ground emergency workers had to use an anchor and haul system to bring retrieve the dog. 

Because of the rocky and unstable ledges works had to go above the animal and lower a rescue worker down to the dog where the firefighter gained the dogs trust and hauled it to safety.  After being rescued in a multi-hour rescue operation the dog was released on a trail that led it out of the park and on to safety. 

Other agencies included the Woodbridge Animal Control and the Woodbridge Fire Department.
