Flint, Michigan – A tiny puppy, thrown away in a trash bag, is alive thanks to an observant worker with Priority Waste. Bobby Brooks is the hero who heard something coming from the hopper of a garbage truck last Wednesday.
Brooks tells Mid Michigan Now:
“I continued to look and I saw the bags moving a little bit. I reached, hopped in there and ripped it open. That’s when we discovered a puppy, laying in the bottom of the hopper.”
Thanks to Brooks’ keen awareness, the pup is alive and well. The company’s CEO is covering the puppy’s veterinary bills and Brooks plans to give the pup a forever home.
Great job Bobby Brooks!
