Did the dog have it's CORSAR Card?

Having watched the news clip, I wonder why they didn't climb up the couloir rather than the rap from above? They could have coaxed the mutt down from half the elevation and not risked dropping rocks on it.

Glad for the happy ending.

Wonderful rescue! She slipped on the ice I presume. She must have appreciated the love and care. They suggest a leash, and that might be helpful, or a larger dog might possibly take the human down with them. Everything is dependent on conditions. Cheers to the rescue teams!
