The Cumbre Vieja volcan0 on La Palma, Spain has been erupting since September. Dogs have been abandoned and are now trapped by molten lava.
Although permits are required to transport dogs by air in Spain, attempts are being made to air lift the weak and hungry dogs using drones.
The drones weigh 50kg and are equipped with wide nets. The drone operators have just 4 minutes to lure the dogs into the nets and another 4 to fly them to safety before the battery capacity is exhausted.
The world is waiting with baited breath to see if this first ever attempt to use this technique will succeed.
