Stray Dog Saves Abandoned Baby in Lebanon
In a remarkable display of animal intuition, a stray dog saved an abandoned baby girl in the Lebanese city of Tripoli. The dog discovered the baby, whose age remains unknown, on Wednesday in a trash bag near the city hall of Tripoli. The local news outlet, The National, reported this incredible incident.
The baby was dumped near the city hall, with the assumption being that a woman left her there, possibly hoping that the stray dogs would attack her. However, the exact opposite happened. The dog decided to carry the trash bag, which led to a passerby hearing the baby's cries.
The baby was then taken by a bystander to an Islamic hospital and later transferred to the Tripoli Government Hospital. Upon arrival at the hospital, it was determined that her condition was severe but stable.
