Jared Twedell was driving to the recycling center on a Sunday morning when the Oregon resident noticed something unusual during his travels.
“There are railroad tracks near the gate, and out of the corner of my eye, I caught this flicker of movement. thought it was a deer lying on the tracks.”
Twedell stopped to whistle toward the animal in hopes that it would leave the tracks. It was then that he noticed it was not a deer but rather, it was a dog.
The problem was, someone had tied the puppy to the track.
“I went into panic mode,” Twedell said. “He tried to walk toward the car and the rope pulled him back.”
The tracks were active and the train came through a few times every day. Twedell had no idea how long he had until the next train would pass. He pulled off to the side of the road and rushed over to help the abandoned dog.
