WHILE it hurts to have a thumbtack plunged into your hand, imagine the pain when you're spiked by a meat hook.

One 72-year-old Goondiwindi woman didn't have to imagine it.

When she attempted to move her dog kennel, the woman sustained a hook to the hand and had to have the RACQ CareFlight chopper attend her property.

RACQ CareFlight Air Crewman Bradd Shelton said the woman was taken to hospital.

"The woman was trying to move a dog kennel, and when she's gone to put it back down, the hook must have been under the kennel and it's gone straight through her hand."

He said it cut through to the other side.

"About two to three inches of the butcher's hook was protruding from her hand," Mr Shelton said.

She was airlifted to the St Andrews Hospital to have the t hook removed.

Mr Shelton said she was airlifted in a stable condition.
