For pets left outside, freezing conditions may be dangerous. The dog was in trouble after licking a manhole cover in Vladivostok, Russia, and getting his tongue frozen to the ice covering the metal.
On that particular day, it was said to have been about 5 degrees Fahrenheit in the city.
When the poor animal was discovered, it was attempting to free itself. The man took prompt action by putting a bottle of water over the frozen region. Fortunately, the man was able to save him, and the dog reportedly managed to flee quite scared and without any additional issues.
We are grateful to this individual for acting when he noticed an animal in need of assistance. If the dog had a home is unknown.
Animals experience the affects of the weather when the temperature drops and may even freeze to death.
