The lumberjack discovered the cage in a wood in Leicester, Massachusetts. It had been left sitting in a clearing, with a bag of food beside it and a single can of dog food on top. But when the lumberjack looked inside, he found a puppy in a very distressing condition.

It’s thought that the animal had reportedly been discarded in the woods a whole two days before being discovered, and it probably hadn’t eaten a thing since. What’s more, the little animal had been bitten by bugs and didn’t appear to have any access to water, either.

The lumberjack took the dog out of the cage and led him to the roadside. The pup had a collar, but there were no identifying tags on it. He did, however, have a leash. And so the worker used it to tie the pooch up in a shaded area, hoping the owner would come back and collect it.
