A pair of Colorado hikers saved a dog that was stranded for over a week in a Park County mine shaft and thanks to Facebook, the friendly doggo is back home safe with her owners. Here’s how the events are described in a series of FB posts by Portia Scovern:
“Preston was hiking this area over A WEEK ago when he heard sounds coming from the cave. He thought it was a wild animal so he did not investigate. He came to hike here again today when he heard actual barking; At which point he called Gannon and I to come help.”
They then called a friend and came back with climbing gear and lowered themselves down:
“We rescued a doggy from an abandoned mine shaft outside Fairplay/Southpark, Colorado!! She is not reported missing at any vet or police station and she is not microchipped..She is underweight and dehydrated, but we are shocked that she has no injuries after a 20ft fall.”
The distressed dog was able to reunite with his owner thanks to social media:
“UPDATE:: Facebook helped find the owner before the sun came up!!”
