This German Shepherd faced both dehydration, starvation, and carbon monoxide poisoning after being stuck in a cheese ball container for three days.
Plastic pollution can quickly become a death trap for innocent animals, turning natural habitats into minefields of danger.
Turtles often mistake floating plastic bags for jellyfish, a fatal error that could cause suffocation.
Likewise, sharks and other marine life face entanglement in discarded nets.
Following his plastic imprisonment, this resilient German Shepherd got the name Cheeto.
For three days, he was deprived of food and water, his head firmly wedged inside the plastic trap.
Cheeto’s luck finally turned around when a good Samaritan discovered him.
He took him to Last Stop Animal Rescue & Sanctuary in Carleton, Michigan.
The couple running the rescue skillfully cut the plastic container from Cheeto’s head, a moment that marked the beginning of his recovery.
