Stranded dog rescued from 100-foot cliff

SHELTON, Wash. -- A gray Collie is safely back with his owner after being stranded 100 feet up a cliff Saturday afternoon.

"Tundra" became stuck on the north side of Harstine Island after chasing an animal off the cliff's edge, said Det. William Adam with the Mason County Sheriff's Office. The 70-pound dog fell about 30 feet but managed to land on a ledge still 100 feet up from the bottom.

Firefighters and deputies arrived after a call to 911 and assembled a rope team rescue. The group was able to safely reach Tundra and lower him the 100 feet to the beach below.

Adam said Tundra was not hurt "and acting very happy toward his rescuers."
