paragliding chihuahua

SYDNEY (AFP) - A chihuahua that went paragliding in Australia strapped to its owner's chest survived when the pair crashed into a tree shortly after taking off, police said Saturday.

Victoria state police said a 42-year-old man set off early Friday evening for what they described as "a routine flight" with his pet dog.
The man and his intrepid canine got into difficulties and crashed into a tree, where they became entangled 35 metres (115 foot) up.
Police found the pair after the man called them from his mobile phone, and they were safely retrieved from the tree after being stuck up there for almost five hours.
Police said the man received abrasions in the crash. The chihuahua was believed to be unharmed.
