In the Polish village of Suwaki, workers overheard something unsettling. In the distance, in a lonely wooded region, a dog was incessantly barking, as if calling for assistance.
Thankfully, the employees decided to pay attention to the howls and followed the sound until it led them to this location: a dog that had become trapped in a pool of sticky tar, was unable to move, and was desperately in need of assistance, writes pawmypets
The workers called rescuer Joanna Godlewska of the Niczyje Animal Foundation after they were unable to free the trapped puppy on their own. Uncertain of what to anticipate, she hurried to the scene.
When I eventually arrived and discovered a dog lying in the tar, Godlewska remarked, “It brought tears to my eyes.”
It is believed that the dog, who may have been aba.ndoned, was searching for heat when he came across the illegally dumped tar. He may not have realized that by lying over it, he would become permanently stuck.
Nobody knew exactly how long the dog had lived, but it was clear that he couldn’t have lasted much longer. His soul was dwindling.
Godlewska received assistance from a local fire department unit in removing the man. As they worked, a glimmer of hope appeared in the restrained pup’s eyes.
Godlewska continued, “He recognized we were saving him.
After carefully removing the most tar-gripped regions, the dog’s remaining fur was loosened by the rescuers using cooking oil.
Finally, they were able to save him after that.
The dog was sent to a vet clinic to receive restorative care for his fatigue and to have as much of the remaining tar removed from his body as possible.
Godlewska said, “He’s feeling better and much better.
The dog, Farcik, was eventually rescued from more than just the deadly sticky death trap he had been caught in.
He was no longer unloved or alone.
There is little doubt that Farcik’s determination to live and alert the appropriate people to his emergency made all the difference during his close call in the tar.
