In Ukraine, a wounded dog fell on some snowy railway lines and was not able to escape to security. Thankfully, Lucy, the dog, had a buddy who would not leave her side. Panda, a male dog, stayed with Lucy for two days, huddling with her in the sub-zero temperature levels and crouching down with her when the trains rushed by their heads. Remarkably, the trains did not hurt them anymore.
Denis Malafeyev, a local animal rescuer, found the couple entangled on the rails. They tried to approach the dogs with various other rescuers, however Panda was extremely safety and barked, displaying symptoms of hostility. The rescuers’ hearts sunk as the train approached.
They realized they would not have the ability to reach Lucy in time, which attempting to save the dogs would certainly place them at risk of being struck by a train. But, surprisingly, both puppies laid down on the tracks, lowered their heads to the ground, and let the train overlook them without incident.
After some initiative and persuading, the rescuers gained Panda’s confidence and were able to get rid of Lucy off the rails. Both canines were taken to the vet and snuggled up to each other the whole trip. Lucy remained in suitable health save from a few scrapes. The puppies’ family was located, and they were recovered to them. Hopefully, their traveling days are past, however both dogs are secure due to Panda sharing his body warmth and keeping watch.
What would you do if you came across canines caught on railway lines that refused to allow you approach?
