Hyderabad animal activists rescue five puppies from drain after 10 hours; watch video here
Animal rescue stories are always heartwarming. In one such incident, a group of animal rights activists rescued a litter of puppies from a drain pipe after they were stuck for 10 hours. The incident occurred at Ambedkar Nagar in Hyderabad, Telangana. A group from the Animal Warriors Conservation Society (ACWS) reached the site and acted quickly after being alerted by locals.
Locals reportedly saw the pups’ mother walking around in the drain and notified the ACWS group. The team arrived and dug a hole over the drain to gain access to the manhole and rescue the pooches that had been stuck in it for over 10 hours. The bailout video went viral after being uploaded to the ACWS ‘official YouTube and Instagram handle. Check out the video:
Hungry and frightened pups kept crying
The video starts with the recording of the shaft where the little pups were trapped. Then it goes to the mother who tries to penetrate the small opening to the dark hole. The video then shows the ACWS team using jackhammers to pound the concrete over the manhole to get to where the pups were stuck. A volunteer then enters the hole with a flashlight. Meanwhile the mother stands around and watches the scene. She seemed to understand that the people around her were trying to help her.
As the team enters the shaft, the frightened pups start barking and crying incessantly. The volunteer rescues one litter at a time and then they reunite with the mother.
The ACWS team narrated the episode in the caption of the video uploaded on their YouTube channel. “They drank milk from their mother after a long time! Mother dog was so excited, came to us to thank us, puppies came here! Finally the whole happy family came back to life! Thank you to the students and staff of the Narayannam Engineering College who stood by us to save these pups !!! ” wrote the enthusiastic group of rescuers.
