RNLI ends dog’s Humber swim record attempt
THERE is no escape. Blyth RNLI claim to have rescued a dog swimming out to sea. Anorak has long suspected that theses rescues are unwanted. The animal could have been on a charity swim.
Says Lifeboat Deputy Launching Authority (DLA) Paul Raine:
“It’s good to see that someone knew what to do and called the coastguard on 999 for help instead of attempting to go after the animal themselves. I would advise any animal owners who find themselves in a similar situation to do the same.”
And the same goes for pets. If your dogs and cats see human beings swimming out to sea or rowing a boat into the Atlantic, call the emergency services.
