A train conductor in Chile, Andres Fabricio Argandoña Tapia, recently had an unusual day at work. As he was driving on his route, he saw a spot on the tracks. When that spot didn’t get out of the way, he quickly slammed on the brakes.
Tapia escaped the train and recorded what occurred as he drew closer. He never would have envisioned a little canine would be fastened to the tracks. Somebody put him there with grave expectations. Had the fast reasoning conductor proceeded on his course, the pooch would have been kept running over. This made Tapia wiped out to his stomach. In the video, he says (deciphered), “By what means can there be such awful individuals who might attach little pooches to the street? Ideally, at some point, mankind will change.”
The video was posted to Tapia’s Facebook page and has since been viewed over 450,000 times! Tapia stops filming after finding the dog but he says that he unchained the dog and set him free, where he then ran off too quickly to catch.
The mayor has released a statement saying they have launched a criminal investigation and if the person responsible is found, charges will be filed. Several agencies have also been on the lookout for the dog and if found, adopters have already come forward to take him in.“We are shocked by the cruelty seen in our society, and strongly condemn this act against such a defenseless animal,” Gonzalez said, according to La Republica. “We appreciate the attitude that the driver had, who saved the life of this pet.” What doesn’t sit right with Tapia is why would someone do this in the first place? It’s beyond comprehension.
