"Words cannot describe what happened to Forest, the stubborn dog that wouldn't just lie down and die," his rescuers wrote in a post to Facebook. It's that stubborn mentality that kept him alive.
He was stuck in a hunter's trap, a device that gets tighter when pulled. His attempts to free himself only made the wire loop dig deeper into his skin.
But before it was too late, he was saved.
He was alive, but in rough shape with infected wounds, parasitic worms and bloodied limbs.
