Tennessee Crews Rescue Goats Stranded on Ledge for Almost 2 Weeks

Emergency personnel rescued four goats that had been stranded for nearly two weeks on a mountain ledge in Hamilton County, Tennessee, on Wednesday, December 6, according to Waldens Ridge Emergency Service which led the operation.

Footage from the rescue service shows crews using ropes to rappel the goats to safe ground.

“Concerned citizens reached out to us for assistance, and although our main priority is ensuring the safety and well-being of humans, we recognize the importance of helping our community in unique situations like these,” they said.
