A dog in Alabama is lucky to be alive – the Labrador retriever (mix?) appears to have been dumped, in a crate which was zip-tied closed, into the water along Bangor Hollow Road – a dead end, dirt road, in Blount County. Miraculously, the dog had a few inches of air which kept him alive and someone found him before the unthinkable took place.
A Facebook post about the upsetting situation was made on Sunday – the post reads, in part:
The person who found it managed to get the crate strapped and drug it out of the water, it only had inches to breathe. A rescuer rushed to get it. It is now at a vet, was checked out, and will be there tonight and watched over. There are things wrong with him that this event did not cause, but he is in good hands now.
The authorities have been notified about the situation – if anyone has information, they are asked to call the police in Blount County.
