Five hikers and seven dogs were taking a Father's Day hike up Petersburg Mountain when atop the summit, two dogs playing together apparently fell over an obscured ledge, dropping over 200-feet onto a rock and snow-covered bench on the backside of the mountain. One dog survived the fall with severe lacerations and the second dog died two hours later while enroute back down the mountain.

Ola and Brian Richard's dog Roxy suffered deep puncture wounds in her pelvic area. She suffered from severe impacts to her head and neck that left a dent in the thick metal I.D. tag riveted to her collar.
