A horse was saved out of deep mud this week with the help of Campbell River emergency crews.

The Fire department teamed up with Search and Rescue, RCMP, B-C Ambulance and a local vet to save the animal.

Fire fighter Ken Dawson says the rider and his horse fell down a trail after coming into contact with a wasp nest.

He says the horse is doing well…

Dawson says the rescue was successfully done with the use of search and rescue rope gear, A-T-Vs and direction from the vet.
