She lay dying on the railway tracks at Nalasopara, Thane district. Luckily she lay on the Goods train track which is not frequently visited by locomotives. She may have been lying there for more than 24 hours before some kind souls spotted her on their way to Office next day.
Several people took the trouble to locate us through Yellow pages. When we brought her into the facility, our Vets, for once had no hopes in their eyes.
But she wasn’t giving up on herself.
In 2 days she sat up straight and started eating. Our surgeon wanted to see her stabilized before he could decide on a virtually impossible surgery.
After much discussion and seeing her never-die-attitude, he decided to amputate her with some amount of plastic surgery.
She had lost a portion of her front left paws also but that was negligible compared to what her hind leg had endured.
In a months time since she was admitted, “GUTSY” was released back to her caretaker who runs a canteen at the station. We went back to check on her 2 weeks later. GUTSY was there by the canteen. She seemed to have learnt her lesson.
