Incident 40/2017 – June 5th Mon. 17.29 – Calf Holes, Birkwith, North Yorkshire – Animal Rescue

A farmer reported one of his sheep had fallen down the 20m pitch at the entrance to Calf Holes, and was concerned as water levels appeared to be rising due to the heavy rain.

A small team attended to find the stream into the pot in flood. An inspection was made of accessible areas of the pitch, but no sign of the sheep could be found. In the interests of safety of our members, no further search of the cave was made, and the farmer was asked to contact the team if he found the sheep had been washed through. The team will return to finish the search once water levels have dropped. Volunteer hours (so far):12
