One of the volunteers at the charity approached the animal slowly, but the dog, clearly terrified, snarled and continued further down the rails.Other volunteers held a net along the track, and the dog could not, in theory, escape. Unfortunately, he managed to sneak around them and run away again.

Loreta, another volunteer, succeeded in placing a collar around the Pitbull's neck, which had severe cuts all over it.

The dog, named Hulk, was still a little suspicious, but he quickly relaxed after some cuddles and affection. He was then rushed to a veterinary clinic. The charity was helped by the people who had informed them of the animal's presence on the railway track.

Hulk's injuries were most likely caused by a collision with a train, to the point that his muscles were torn. The medical team immediately got to work, and discovered that the poor dog also suffered from a broken jaw and several broken teeth.After several operations, Hulk was finally out of the danger zone. Three days after his rescue, he kept thanking Loreta, the woman who saved his life.
