Here’s a story which has drawn a lot of attention recently, mostly questioning how some people can be so lost when faced with a “lost puppy” when camping outdoors.
A veterinary clinic located in Ketchum, Idaho got quite a shock, when out-of-town campers brought a “lost puppy” for them to check out.
Based on reports from LocalNews8, campers in the Ketchum, Idaho area were concerned for the safety of this “adorable lost puppy” which they found while on a camping trip, instinctively bringing the “puppy” to the nearest veterinarian clinic in the town.
After a thorough examination, a worker in the clinic had suspicious over the authenticity of the “lost puppy” as being “lost” and a “puppy”, suggesting that it wasn’t a puppy but a wolf cub. A representative from Defenders of Wildlife also suspected the same thing, and from there, Fish and Game officers handled the “lost puppy” case.
A large portion of a week was dedicated in locating the “lost puppy’s” pack, basing searches on where it was initially found. Given that wolf cubs do require their mother’s milk, emphasis on the importance of reuniting the “lost puppy” with its pack was given its due attention.
No sign of the “lost puppy’s” pack has yet to be found, and as an alternative, the Zoo Boise has taken the responsibility of taking care of the cub, until a more permanent and ideal habitat is found for the cub, or until its pack is identified.
Would you, bring a “lost puppy” in the woods to the vet? Would you really think it was a “lost puppy” considering the outdoors?
