In a heartwarming incident, three puppies that had fallen into a 30-feet well in Hyderabad's Hi-Tech City, were rescued by activists, and reunited with their mother.
A video released by the Blue Cross of Hyderabad, shows the volunteers slowly lowering themselves into the pit with the help of a rope, before sending the puppies back up, in another small bag.
"Three adorable puppies ended up being trapped in an open construction pit filled with water, desperately clinging onto rocks. Fortunately, as puppies would, they created a ruckus for people to notice...The heart warming reunion in the end reminds us that animals communicate with us!" the organisation said in its Facebook post.
The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) and locals also helped the activists.
According to a report in the Deccan Chronicle, the activists who were part of the rescue were Pradeep Nair, Anthony Prabhuteja and J Santoshi.
Speaking to DC, Pradeep said, "Had the rescue been delayed, the pups would have died due to hunger or hypothermia."
Stating that the mother of the pups could not be tracked initially, he added, "We played out a loud video from the internet of a pup crying. Soon, the mother emerged from the bushes. Her excitement and happiness cannot be explained in words when she saw the puppies. She wagged her tail and started licking us and the puppies."
