Re: Ever Done a Horse or Large Animal Recovery?


 Share

Recommended Posts

Hi All ... Have you ever worked a horse or large animal recovery or extrication?

 

I'm looking for input on what part you played in the recovery and if you charged for your work?

 

Who paid for the extraction?

 

Was the animals owner present?

 

Was there a veterinarian on-scene?

 

How long did it take?

 

Would you do it again?

 

Any input is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

R.

I don't know if you would consider this a "recovery" so much as a.... transport.

There was a tractor trailer rollover several days earlier that killed a few of the animals, and they quickly corralled most of the others. But this fella was loose running around town for about 3 days. It ended up charging an officer who shot and killed it. Animal control said it was too large to get into their trailer to transport and they called us off rotation.

I don't know if we ever actually for paid for it, I would assume the insurance for the trailer trailer that was initially involved since it was its "cargo"?

No, but they had several good samaritans and such that had been trying to rope it for days.

I don't think that was necessary.

Absolutely.

On a more related note though, we did recently train with the fire department for such a scenario.

 

No description available.

Thanks for your Animosus for your comments.  Not the animal recovery I had in mind, but an animal removal none the less. I appreciate your comments and pics.

 

Specifically, I seek info from towers who have lifted live animals from ditches, well-holes or other like type situation ... those not dead and with veterinarian assistance.

 

Thank you for being a BIG part of large animal training in your rural Wyoming area. I'm sure the fire department appreciate's it too.       R.
