Park Rangers Go After Dog That Fell Into A Volcano


On October 3, a dog who fell on a 20-foot crack in Hawaii Volcanos Park was rescued by 6 park rangers.

It was a Saturday evening when Marta Caproni was walking her dogs off-leash near the volcano golf course and the park boundary. Her dogs suddenly ran towards a heavily vegetated area. One of them came back, but the other one did not. When Romeo the chocolate Lab didn’t return, Marta searched for him the whole night but couldn’t find him.

She and her boyfriend went back to the area the next day, they heard a faint cry coming from a crack. And there they saw, Romeo stuck 20-feet below the earth. Marta didn’t know what to do, so she called the park rangers who immediately responded to the call. Rangers don’t usually execute rescues, but luckily they came to Marta’s aid.
