A man was in the best place at the correct time to save a dog hanging from an electric cord near a highway overpass.
David Fredman was heading to work in Freedom, MO when he spotted the dog near the I-70 overpass.
” I saw what appeared like a dog that was being hung over the side of some kind of power box. The cable was definitely strangling him,” Fredman informed Fox4 KC. “His feet were touching the ground, however they were hardly touching the ground. He was trying to whip his head left and best but can barely move it.”
Fredman instantly called 911 and after that got a blade to cut the dog free. The moment he cut the canine free he noticed the dog was trying to take a breath. He couldn’t walk either, but after he cleared up the canine down he brought him to KC Pet Project.
They discovered the dog was microchipped and named Max and that his proprietor, Dee Vaughn, had actually been looking for him. Vaughn was relieved to get a phone call that Max had actually been located just two hrs after he reported his dog missing but was very upset when he heard what had actually happened to his 16-year-old dog.
It’s uncertain how Max got into the predicament. Was it an accident or did someone intentionally try and hang Max? Vaughn said there’s no way his elderly dog could have walked the mile to where he was located.
But he informed the news station that security cameras might reveal what befell his dog. Definitely the electrical cable around Max’s neck points to suspicious activity. Vaughn claimed he has called police and was informed to contact animal control, which he plans to do.
But he’s simply thankful that Max is house safe thanks to Fredman. He had a possibility to say thanks to Fredman personally and told him, “Thank you, David, a lot. You quit what you were doing to reverse and save my canine’s life.”.
