In the beginning of September in San Martin, Peru, a dog was saved from a trap which would certainly have killed him.The animal had gotten his head stuck in a hole as he was probably looking for food in the canals. Only his head was sticking out of the ground when the residents noticed him.
Nikki was dehydrated and panting heavily so his rescuers decided to first bring him some water. Then came the difficult job of freeing him. This involved shovels, a pickaxe and even a jackhammer as the residents tried to haul him out of the hole that was strangling his neck.
Nikki might have been stuck in the hole for any number of hours, but luckily he showed no signs of injury and seemed to be perfectly healthy as he was freed.Watch the brave team working to rescue Nikki in this video:[embed]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0VfTkhUFl3k[/embed]Nikki is almost certainly a stray dog, one of the thousands in Peru, but he has thankfully been temporarily adopted by one of the rescuers while they search for a permanent family willing to take the dog in.
