According to dogfull.com, a fortuitous encounter occurred when a man named David Fredman stumbled upon a dog hanging from an electrical cord by a highway overpass as he was on his way to work in Independence, MO. Fortunately for the dog, Fredman was in the right place at the right time to rescue it.
According to Fredman, he witnessed a disturbing scene where a canine appeared to be hanged from a power box using a cord that was choking him. Despite the fact that his feet were touching the ground, the poor creature struggled to move his head as it was barely touching the ground, making it challenging to break free from the strangulation.
Fredman acted quickly after contacting 911 and used a knife to free the distressed dog. The poor animal was clearly struggling to breathe even after being released from its captivity. Despite being unable to walk, Fredman safely transported the dog to KC Pet Project where they discovered that the dog was microchipped with the name Max. The owner, Dee Vaughn, had been frantically searching for Max and was relieved to receive a call just two hours after reporting him missing. Unfortunately, Vaughn was also devastated to learn about the ordeal that Max had gone through at the hands of an unknown perpetrator.
Max is in a tricky situation and the cause of it is unclear. It is uncertain if someone deliberately hung him or if it was an accident. According to Vaughn, his old dog wouldn’t have made it to where he was discovered, a mile away. Vaughn mentioned that the surveillance cameras might provide insight into what happened to his dog. The electrical cord found around Max’s neck makes things appear suspicious. Although Vaughn contacted the authorities, he was advised to contact animal control, which he intends to do. He is relieved that Max is back home safely because of Fredman. Vaughn got the opportunity to thank Fredman personally and expressed his gratitude for saving his dog’s life by saying, “David, thank you so much. You stopped whatever you were doing to turn around and rescue my dog.”
