Rescuers have not given up trying to save a Kangal puppy who fell into an old 292-feet-deep old well in the Beykoz, Istanbul district. Monday marks the eighth day efforts to save the guard dog have continued. Meanwhile food and water are being lowered into the hole by rope to keep the dog alive until he can be lifted to safety.
According to the Daily Sabah, local rescuers and animal advocates have been stymied by the lack of specialized equipment. On Sunday, the Prime Ministry Disaster and Emergency Management Authority arrived at the scene and were able to erect a tent over the area to ease the harsh weather conditions of the area as rescuers struggle to help.
Rescuers are attempting to lower a rope and get a hold of the dog with a net to safely lift him up to the surface. A camera is monitoring the dog. At least 15 men are doing their best to help.
