How Taco Sauce Helped Jeremy And His Pet Dog Lasted Five Long Days In The Snow
Stories of people and dogs stranded in heavy snow are not uncommon. Here is an incredible survival story of 36 years old Jeremy Taylor of Oregon, driving through the forest in Sunriver with his pet dog Ally on Feb 24th, the snowfall was so heavy that his Toyota 4Runner was trapped in the deep snow.
Since they were not prepared for this accident, they did not have handphone with them to call for help, and they had no food to eat except devouring on the packs of taco sauce he found in the car. Jeremy told the rescue team that the taco sauce had kept them alive for five days.
The Sheriff’s Office of Deschutes County posted a search and rescue announcement on Facebook after it was discovered that Jeremy and Ally did not come back from his excursion.
It was lucky that on March 1st, five days after they were missing, they were finally discovered by a snowmobiler and a pursuit and salvage group pulled his vehicle out of the forested areas utilizing a huge snow tractor.
Sheriff’s office representative Sergeant William Bailey said that Jeremy and Ally were observed to be calm and fine. Obviously, the pair were very hungry and cold in the wake of being trapped in the heavy snow for five long days.
Jeremy was thankful to survive through the distress. He told the inspector that on Sunday he was driving up the service road with his dog Ally, somehow ended up stranded in the deep snow.
They were trapped overnight, arose on Monday to considerably more snowfall and there was no way he could get his 4Runner out of the deep snow. Jeremy had endeavored to leave his vehicle and walked to seek help on Monday, unfortunately, it was impossible for them to make it. So he had no choice but to take his dog Ally back to his vehicle.
The only way to keep warm is by starting the car engine intermittently, cuddled up to Ally to keep each other warm and they survived the following four days by eating the taco sauce he found in his car.
Jeremy and Ally eventually got home safely, he jokingly posted on Facebook: “Taco Bell fire sauce spares lives!!”
He also thanked everybody that helped him and Ally his dog out of trouble. “It was a bad accident and lucky we got out of it. Never let that happen again,” said Jeremy.
