Dog Stuck in Bear Trap for Weeks Finally Rescued

BarkPost

After Forest the dog became trapped in a bear trap, it’s a miracle he survived at all.

In Przemysl, Poland, both of Forest’s left legs became logged into a bear trap while he was alone in the woods. He fought life and death to stay alive after two weeks, and rescuers believe he stayed hydrated by licking the snow around him.

A rescue group was outside in the forest when they came across Forest before he passed away. The Centrum Adopcyjne Rescue group brought him to a veterinarian where he had both good and bad news.With parasitic worms and infections in his wounds, he needed to have both his front left and rear left legs amputated. One rescue worker, Jakub Kotwics took to Forest immediately and worked with him personally.

The group isn’t quite sure how Forest ended up in this predicament – whether he was a lost pup or a stray, but there is currently a Dotpay account ready in his name to provide the funding for prosthetics so that he can walk and support his own weight.
