Dog Stranded 120 Feet Above Mississippi River Rescued by Bridge Inspectors

1 Mins read

More great news … and another example of human kindness towards a helpless animal.

Last month, on what seemed to be an ordinary workday, a crew from the Mississippi Department of Transportation noticed something odd as they were inspecting a bridge over the Mississippi River in Natchez, MS.

120 feet above the river was a cute dog who was stranded on the bridge’s framework.

Take a look at this video and these photos …

It was something the crew of engineers has never seen before so at first, they thought it was a wild raccoon.

They started working together to help the dog. The pup was shy but started cooperating, realizing that the men wanted to help.

Ryan Nataluk, a vice president and lead engineer for the company Stanec had been climbing bridges for 23 years and is also a mountain climber. He used his skills to help the scared animal.

After alerting the police, he used a piece of chord as a harness to secure himself and then climbed down the bridge. When he was able, he placed the dog in the harness, and with the help of an officer named, John Fenly, they pulled her to safety.

They checked the dog to make sure she didn’t have any injuries and the crew members said she looked really happy.

Nataluk joked about adopting the pup, but she was already adopted after the rescue.

At Karmagawa we love stories like this. Humans are capable of so much love and we need to do all we can to protect them. We hope she is happy with her new family.
