Two kelpies were unlucky after falling down a mineshalf south of Moruya.
Moruya SES and Fire and Rescue crews attended the scene after reports of two dogs that had rolled down 25 metres below into a mineshalf, which was surrounded by bushland.
The two dogs were safely winched back up onto leveled ground, after a delicate operation which took more than one hour.
Both dogs were in happy spirits, and there were no signs of visible injuries.
