Drone SAR
Great news to hear Mitzi, has been found and reunited. Drone SAR were involved from November 17th when Mitzi, was reported to us as missing and a help request came in. We couldn’t fly drones in the area as to near an air base but had ground searchers tagged in. Sadly Mitzi, was taken into a private group and locked down as so often happens. Welcome home Mitzi, now stay safe baby xxLast edited: 2020-02-14 20:47:50 by Drone SAR

To confirm Mitzi was caught today by our Solstice team members. NO OTHER group is involved in her capture at all - it has already been indicated on fb otherwise. We set up the Mitzi page and the only non member was her fosterer (and friends). No other groups have helped or suported us, nor was it requested.

There have been various sightings of Mitzi in and around Amesbury, but nothing for a week, so it’s important we share her page further afield.

Possible sightings Monday at 9.30am on westbound carriageway A303 by junction if A338 - area is near a sighting last week. Then at midnight Monday night near Telegraph hill towards Bulford.

Last confirmed sighting is still over near Racedown farm Thruxton down. Possible sightings in Perham near Lambsdown terrace on Tuesday evening at 6.30pm and Tuesday evening in a field over near the Castle at 4.30/4.45 (extremely unlikely they would both be her) but she could easily get mistaken for a Fox in bad light / evening.

Hopefully Mitzi can make her own way home if no one stops her. We think she knows exactly where she is and where home is. As ever, it is more about passive observation than active searching.

Sighting at Perham tank Crossing posted on spotted in Tidworth

- it’s probably safest to assume that Mitzi’s in survival mode and views all humans as predators. This way searchers can’t do anything wrong, otherwise, if people get too close, or make any attempt to catch her, she will panic and panicked dogs move out of the area and make bad decisions.

- the aim is to get her to come back to a safe location regularly, by feeding her, then a decision can be made about the best way to catch her – by hand, by humane trap, enclosed area, darting

- if it’s a safe location, regularly leave food at every sighting at the time she was spotted or dawn and dusk. Scan area with a thermal imaging/infrared camera/drone if available

- once on scene, use passive body language – no eye contact, bowed head, lie/sit down, turn away from her, no noise, smooth movements. Attract her by throwing smelly tasty treats behind or to the side of you, not at her - sausages, chicken, cheese. It can take hours to gain trust and for survival mode to fade out so go prepared. Hopefully this won't be the case but it's best to be prepared.

- many dogs will return home if they're left alone. This commonly occurs during the early hours of the morning. Place unwashed cloths on the washing line to create a scent trail to guide her home, along with her bedding on the ground ready for her, and allow access to the property.

Please also join DroneSAR in case drone searching is required https://www.facebook.com/groups/DroneSARForLostDogsUK/

https://www.doxdirect.com/help/free-missing-pet-posters/ will print 50 free A4 posters delivered next day. You’ll need more and maybe A5 flyers as well, but it’s a start.

How long have you had her ?

How well does she know the area ?

Confidence level around dogs/humans/generally ?
