Teal – September 2016 – tracked by Tiga
Teal and her daughter were black Labradors that were being looked after by friends in the owners home while on holiday.
Unfortunately Teal and her daughter got out and went on an adventure and were both seen soon after on the railway tracks a mile or two from home. A relative was soon on the scene as a train had hooted and the daughter returned to the whistle but no sign of Teal. A couple of days later Tiga was called in to help find Teal and he started from alongside the railway. He picked up scent along the field which was adjacent to the tracks and went down into a copse which is where the daughter had been seen to come so presumably where they had gone before going onto the tracks.
Sadly no other scent was found and after much perseverance to Railtrack – the local workers on the line confirmed that Teal’s body was on the tracks. So sad.
Run free Teal and rest in peace.
