CM – A drone company will try to air freight dogs stranded on the Spanish volcano


A Spanish drone driver was given permission on Tuesday to rescue three emaciated dogs trapped near a volcano in the Canary Islands by capturing them with a remote-controlled net and flying over a lava flow.

The three dogs have been stranded for weeks in an abandoned, volcanic ash-covered courtyard on the island of La Palma.

They were fed by drones that drop food packages, but no one has yet been able to figure out how to save them. Helicopters are not allowed to fly into the area as hot gas can damage their rotors.

After assessing the proposed rescue mission, emergency authorities said in a statement that they had decided to allow them in.

Jaime Pereira, CEO of the drone operator Aerocamaras said it plans to deploy a 50kg drone with a wide net to try to capture the dogs one by one and get them to safety over flowing lava 450 meters away.

« It’s the first time that an animal is rescued with a drone and the first time it has to be caught, « Pereira told Reuters. « If that is the last chance for the dogs?

The operator only has four minutes to lure a dog to the network and another four minutes to fly it out.

 » What we don’t want, is that flying over the lava drains the battery, « said Pereira.

Test flights are still being carried out. Ultimately, the mission depends on how the dogs react to the machine, said Pereira.

« You have been eating very little for weeks. You could come or be afraid of the drone. We really depend on your reaction. » / p> (Except for the headline, this story has not been edited by NDTV staff and will be published via a syndicated feed.)
