efforts added up to more than $144,000 for a British fire and rescue team, according to a new report from the Lincolnite.
The Urban Search and Rescue Team (USAR) spent a substantial amount over the past two years on everything from dog rescues to lengthy horse rescues.
One official commented on the reasons behind the steep costs.
"As Lincolnshire is a large rural county, firefighters do get called to assist the RSPCA with large animal rescue work that can often involve saving the lives of livestock worth considerable amounts of money," Mary-Bronwen Maggs, the Knowledge and Information Manager at the Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue, told the news source.
In the U.S., the Humane Society and local fire departments also undertake animal rescues. There are roughly 93 million cats in households across the U.S., according to the Humane Society, and at times, American firefighters are called in to rescue some of these cats from tall trees as well.
