While preparing to fish in Grenada Lake, Mississippi, three fishermen discovered hunting dogs trapped in the water. All of the dogs were brought back to land, safe and sound.

It was a surprising discovery that Bob Gist, Brad Carlisle and their fishing guide Jordan Chrestman made on Wednesday, June 19. The three men set out on a fishing boat to catch fish that day on Grenada Lake in Mississippi. However, in the middle of the water, they discovered… dogs.

38 dogs were swimming in the middle of the lake, 2 kilometers from the shore. Unable to orient themselves, the dogs were treading water and were unable to reach dry land. These were hunting dogs since the animals were wearing radio collars and had paint marks on their backs.

They bring all the dogs back to shore

Understanding their distress, the three fishermen did everything they could to save them. They steered their boat towards the dogs and rescued them, while the animals swam in all directions, disoriented.

“They were lost. The way their heads were in the water, there was no way they could see shore. We rescued every dog ​​we saw.”Bob Gist explained, according to comments reported by Woopets.

The fishermen began loading 27 dogs onto their boat. Due to lack of space and the cooperation of some dogs, they brought the small herd back to shore before leaving. They were finally able to get the other 11 on board and bring them back to dry land, safe and sound.

“At first there was a small white fish that Brad tried to catch and the dog bit him. He got close to me so I tried to catch him and he tried to bite me, so we left him. When we came back for the second load, it was probably 30 to 45 minutes later. By then he was ready to get in the boat. He wasn’t biting anyone.”Bob Gist explained to People.

The dogs’ owners quickly arrived on the scene. According to them, the canines were participating in a fox hunt when they were distracted by a deer. The latter jumped into the lake to cross, the dogs followed it, moved away from the shore and remained stuck in the water, disoriented. According to Action News 5the owners of the dogs wanted to give the fishermen money to thank them but the latter refused the offer, saying that they were simply there at the right time and in the right place.
