Alameda County Fire Department crews rescued a horse that fell into a ravine in the Palomares Canyon area of Castro Valley last Friday morning.

Responding personnel were called shortly after 10 a.m. to the scene, where the horse was wedged into a ravine about 15 feet below.

It took about an hour to free and extricate the horse, which was then turned over to its owner and a veterinarian, fire officials said
