Dog on Last Legs Saved From Death

by Mary Haight on July 7, 2010

Outdoorsman Zak Anderegg hikes, climbs, and videos his finds in the scenic canyons that run along the Arizona Utah border. The unexpected happened when he found a stray dog who had either fallen or been thrown several hundred feet into a cavern.  He was alone.  How could he save the dog without help? He tried to do the smart thing and call for help, and was refused. But he couldn’t just leave the dog to die down in that dark hole in the world.

Anderegg ended up risking his own life climbing down into a cavern several hundreds of feet below the surface to rescue the stray–and he gets it on film!  What a guy!  After the flood of recent bad news recalls, I found this great feel good story and wanted to share it. Enjoy!
