In Colorado, United States — Local residents reported that they’ve been hearing strange cries on Mt. Bross. They were sure that it was from an animal but they weren’t sure what kind of animal would make those strange noises. Many rumors said that it was a coyote or some kind of wild animal. No one knew what made those sounds and many speculated that it was something feral. A brave woman, who believed it was a distressed dog, decided to find out and she climbed the mountain alone.
Trinity Smith heard of these rumors of strange cries. It would be something that one would normally ignore but her determination kicked in when she heard of a family who its pet dog for several weeks. They lost hope in ever finding the poor creature.
The idea that a helpless and weak dog might be stranded on a mountain motivated Trinity to brave the elements. She was an animal lover and couldn’t bear the thought of a dog in danger. When Trinity climbed up alone, she soon heard the strange cries everyone was talking about.
But as she climbed, it was clear that the sound came from far away and to make matters worse it was beginning to get dark. The woman had no choice but to stop her search and leave it for the next day. But she came back, now accompanied by a friend named Sean Nichols. He said:
“For three hours, I climbed up every chute, trying to keep myself from creating massive rock slides, calling for the dog and right as we were about to head back the dog finally gave a faint bark, giving away her location.”
Eventually they saw a thin, almost lifeless dog laying by some rocks. Because of its weakened state they gently carried it and made their way down the mountain. Trinity then posted her rescue on Facebook which went viral. Soon she was contacted by the dog’s real owners and they were reunited.
“This poor thing has been stranded high up on a cliff for over a month. She was once a 90lb dog who now weighs 26. Glad to have her off that mountain and back with her owner’s!” Trinity said.
Smith continued: “I am overwhelmed with joy seeing sweet Chloe back with her loving family, already gaining lots of weight, and progressing so fast.”
She added: “She has more fight in her than most of us could ever imagine, lasting six whole weeks in such harsh, inhospitable conditions.”
