Goats stuck on rocky area for a week rescued by AKUT

MUGLA: Five goats which had been stuck on a rocky area for a week in Turkish western province of Mugla’s Seydikemer district were rescued in a two-day-long operation by the Turkish Search and Rescue Team (AKUT) on Tuesday.

Owner of the animals Okan Soy told Cihan news agency that the goats were stuck at a rocky area meters above and he called for help from the AKUT when he could not save them by his own means.

AKUT arrived at the area on Sunday. Officials had difficulty in their operation since it rained a lot in the district. For two days, the goats were rescued one by one. Soy thanked the AKUT for its successful operation.
