ELLIJAY, Ga. – Yesterday, Jan. 3, several people became aware of a developing situation through a viral Facebook post about a dog who had become stuck.
According to that post by local citizen Leah Britt, the animal had been stuck for some time with authorities unable to help. As the post has reached nearly 6,000 shares, the viral nature brought out several citizens in attempts of continued rescue for the animal.
Through the continued popularity of the post, more information came to light as the dog, named Handsome, had allegedly been trapped in the hole for three days.
Despite continued efforts from all involved, the animal did not survive, passing away during the rescue operation.
