Rescue crews saved a dog from peril Tuesday, plucking him or her from the side of a San Francisco cliff.
The cliff, of course, was Fort Funston, the site of numerous such incidents in recent months. A photo posted by NBC Bay Area shows the cliff in question, a steep bluff near the area's parking lot.
According to a series of tweets from the San Francisco Fire Department, the rescue was ongoing as of 11:52 a.m. Tuesday, when a dog got "stuck on the side of a steep cliff."
By 12:29, the pup was pulled to safety. He or she was uninjured in the incident, the SFFD says.

This is but the latest in a long line of canine rescues at Fort Funston. In February of this year, another dog was pulled from the brink by the SFFD. After a February 2016 fall, another dog was saved, and in
In December of 2016, a dog and its guardian were both rescued from the cliff. Another dog/guardian team was rescued in July that same year. The moral of the story? Dogs aren't great at not falling off cliffs, and their rrescue should likely be left to the professionals.
