National Park Service rangers do amazing things every day, so we wanted to bring you all this heartwarming story as a great example of the work they do on a daily basis. Earlier this week, Kenai Fjords National Park staff received a report of a dog stranded on a cliff ledge near the edge of Exit Glacier. After gaining the dog’s trust, the dog was pulled to safety and carried out to the trailhead. Reports are that the dog is recovering well.
