A mountain goat has been rescued by police in Antequera, Malaga province, after it fell and became trapped inside a steep five-metre chasm.

Specialist officers from the Seprona nature and environment protection branch of the Guardia Civil received a phone call from a member of the public who reported the incident and said that the wild animal trapped in a deep hole in the ground had no way of getting out.

Officers went to the area and discovered the animal was suffering from some malnutrition, dehydration and exhaustion after being trapped for several days. They used a strap around the animal and lifted it through the hole to safety. The goat was immediately released and started to feed on surrounding vegetation.

The hole was cordoned off and signposted to warn of the danger to people.
