First responders in north Alabama rescued a dog that had fallen into a 300-foot ravine Monday night.

The Killen Fire Rescue shared a message about the operation on its Facebook page. It says members were contacted by police in St. Florian around 7 p.m. Monday to assist officers who found the animal at the bottom of the ravine.

A rope system was set up to allow crews down into the ravine to reach the dog. Firefighters and police officers then rescued the animal by bringing it up and on to a stretcher.

The dog was reportedly scared and cold, but OK.
