Dogs, locked away in a kennel in the midst of rapidly rising floodwaters, nearly drowned in North Carolina. According to WCNC News, six dogs were locked inside of a chain link kennel in a flooded area of Leland.
On Sunday, Good Samaritans discovered the frightening situation after hearing the frightened dogs howling. A man waded through deep water to access the kennel door and free the trapped dogs from the kennel – video shows the pups being coaxed to dry land.
No information has been provided about who the dogs belong to, or how long they had been locked in the kennel.
Remnants of hurricane Florence continue to plague the area with non-stop rains and flooding. According to the Washington Post, at least 17 people in the Carolinas have died from the widespread storm.
Careless and/or irresponsible pet owners are far too abundant. In Texas, a pit bull, left chained to a tree, was in danger in rising tide water. If not for a compassionate police officer, the dog would have likely drowned.
