Dog Rescued on Berkshires Mountain

Monument Mountain is located in Great Barrington, MA.

A small dog named Luna was rescued on April 29 after she fell off a ledge at the summit of Monument Mountain in Great Barrington, MA.

Great Barrington fire crews responded to the mountain shortly after 9:30 a.m. and climbed to the 1,642-foot summit laden with rescue equipment.

Fortunately, Luna had landed on a small ledge some 10 feet from the top of the cliff, which plummets 100 feet to a rocky bottom.

“Firefighters rigged a rope system to lower a rescuer over the edge to Luna,” read a statement issued by the fire department. “She was secured by the rescuer and they were both safely hauled back up.”

The fire department reminded hikers to keep their dogs on a leash at the summit of Monument Mountain, and to keep a close eye on children as well.
