Millie, a 3-year-old Jack Russell-whippet mix, disappeared after slipping out of her leash and it took four days to rescue her.
Denmead Drone Search and Rescue team embarked on a four-day rescue but Millie kept disappearing. According to Huffington Post the situation became severe when the pup was spotted on a mud flat with a rapidly rising tide. She would have been at risk of drowning if she wasn't quickly rescued.
Even though they had firefighters, police, and other volunteers, they struggled to capture Millie. That is when one of the Denmead drone pilots came up with a creative solution to attach sausage to a drone in order to lure her to safety. The drone rescue team calculated the weight that their vehicle could take and, after quick deliberation, figured it was their best shot.
"One of the local residents on the beach where we were flying from supplied us with the sausages, I think they were Aldi. The woman cooked them up for us and we attached them with a string." said Chris Taylor, the chair of the Denmead Drone Search and Rescue.
Millie took the bait and was lured to a safer spot where she could be safely rescued. She was so happy with her belly full of sausage. After her adventure she was taken to the vet and she was completely fine only being prescribed lots of TLC.
