Easter Monday here on the Côte d'Azur, France: A cute lamb falls 20 meters off the cliff of the Saint-Pilon in the famous Massif de la Sainte-Baume mountainous ridge. Caught by a safety net set-up to catch falling rocks, it survives.
Now local authorities face a dilemma: should it be saved or roasted?
Saving the lamb means calling the a special-operations team called GRIMP: Groupe d'Intervention en Milieux Perilleux. This is a highly-trained team that saves people in cliff-hanging situations that surpass the training and equipment of regular fire-fighters. In the Var department of South-Eastern France, the GRIMP team most frequently intervenes in the Gorges du Verdon and at the Sainte-Baume. They're few, experts, expensive.
The other option is to watch the lamb dangle, suffer and die.
Naturally, GRIMP tackles the cliff and hauls the injured lamb to safety, gently carrying it on their human backs. It is now recovering at the vet's in Carcès.
This stunt-loving sheep may still end up in a provençal lamb stew, but for now, it's a very lucky little lamb.
