Construction sites can be rather intimidating and dangerous if you don't know the in's and out's of the operation. If you've been on a construction site before, you know that it can be incredibly hectic. Gianormous machinery is moving all directions, people are yelling across the site to one another, jackhammers are buzzing loudly, and hammers are pounding.
It's madness, to say the least. The workers are running from sun up to sun down to complete the task at hand. It's a long of long, exhausting hours that require a lot of mental and physical energy. With chaos this loud, it's easy to overlook the smaller sights and sounds.
At a construction site near London's Canary Wharf, the day was no different than the rest. The workers were busily completely their daily tasks amid the hustle and bustle of the others around them. Amid the craziness of the atmosphere, one worker noticed something out of the ordinary.
As he got closer, he knew that this was no ordinary occurrence. He immediately called over some of his co-workers to inspect the scene as well to be sure he was seeing the right thing. Sure enough, his eyes weren't playing tricks on him.
A small puppy was stuck in a muddy hole nearby the site and the poor thing couldn't get out. He appeared to have been struggling for so long that his energy was depleted and the fight was almost gone from his eyes. The worker was overcome with pity and emotion and stopped work to help rescue the little animal.
With the help of co-workers, they were able to carefully extract the muddy little creature from its captivity. When they began inspecting the rescued animal, they realized he was in far worse condition than they even thought. Not only was he covered in heavy dried mud but hard pieces of plastic were deeply matted in his fur.
They knew they had to rush the poor animal to a hospital or it would be too late. Within moments of arriving, the hospital staff sprang into action and took the filthy pup to be cleaned and treated. They gave the little one a nice, warm bath to help dissolve the mud and debris from his coat. The more they cleaned, the more shocked they became. As the mud washed away, they quickly realized this was no puppy at all. Check out the following page to see just what critter was hiding under all that mud.
