Jared Twedell was driving one weekend when he noticed an unusual mass in the middle of a train track. Upon closer inspection, though, he realized that the object was an animal – and to make matters worse, it was tied up. But Twedell didn’t just stand by; instead, he embarked on a race against time to save the creature.
Twedell comes from Oregon, where he shares his home with a whole host of furry friends – including one Flemish rabbit, a few cats and a pair of rescue dogs. Needless to say, then, the man seems to be somewhat of an animal lover.
However, seemingly not everyone in Twedell’s home state shares his apparent affection. In 2017, for instance, a rise in the number of animal abandonments was reported in one corner of southern Oregon. Residents in Jackson Country had grown concerned after having noticed that more and more animals were being left on quiet roads.
