A woman from Arizona, United States discovered what she thought to be a poor puppy that was covered in cactus. However, upon freeing the suffering animal from barbed plant, they found that they may have misjudged the situation...
A woman named Gwen Maxwell, 86, discovered a puppy (or what she thought was a normal puppy) struggling around her property. The poor coyote was covered in cholla cactus and couldn't see clearly.
It was clear that the coyote was struggling and in severe pain. Gwen stated 'I was shocked to see this little one tumbling over an over and over, covered head to foot with these little chunks of cholla'.
The coyote puppy and his mother continued to stumble towards a nearby Golf Course whilst Gwen was calling out for help.
Jose Soto, golf course maintenance worker, heard her cries and came to the rescue with other fellow colleagues. They used a pair of pliers to remove the cactus spines from the puppy.
The puppy was bleeding because the cactus was deeply embedded. All along, the puppy's mother was close by and was watching as people were rescuing her pup.
Gwen stated that the mother knew exactly what was going on and that people were trying to rescue her puppy. After some time, all the cactus was removed and the puppy and his mother carried along.
