Rescuing a Stray Dog from Railroad Tracks Just in Time: A Woman’s Quick Thinking Saves a Life

Upon receiving a notification on Facebook about an abandoned grey and white pit bull in a park near the railroad tracks, Nina Love sprang into action. Without wasting any time, she quickly gathered her supplies and reached out to a fellow rescuer residing in the vicinity for help. Although the dog was visible on the tracks, capturing her was no easy feat. Love chased the animal for three long miles down the railway tracks, feeling her adrenaline pumping. She was aware that the train would be approaching soon as it had passed by just before the canine ran onto the tracks, and trains usually traverse every 10 to 15 minutes.

Nina Love found herself in a dangerous situation, but she knew she couldn’t back down when she saw the pleading eyes of the dog. Despite her fear, Love was determined to rescue the frightened animal and approached slowly with caution. “I could sense the fear in her eyes, so I remained patient and kept my distance,” Love recounted. Though it was risky, Love refused to give up on the dog in need.
