Two kittens stuffed inside cat food bag and dumped in road are rescued... by a dog


Left for dead: Tipper and Skipper were thrown into a bag with several other kittens and dumped in the middle of a road

Two kittens stuffed inside a bag and cruelly dumped in the middle of a road were heroically rescued... by a dog.

Tipper and Skipper had been sealed inside a Meow Mix bag along with the rest of their litter and left in the street in Des Moines, Iowa.

The bag had been hit by a car, killing some of the kittens inside, when a passing dog came to their rescue, picking up the bag and carrying it home.

Saved: The vulnerable pair would not have survived if it were not for heroic dog Regan, who came to their rescue

Regan refused to stop whining to her owner until they had opened the bag, revealing the grisly contents and two seriously injured but still alive kittens.

Linda Blakely, from Iowa's Raccoon Valley Animal Sanctuary, told CBS: 'The instinct of the dog was to nurture and not kill the kittens.

'With all the blood some dogs would have responded to the scent. Reagan the dog is a hero.'

She added: 'When she reached in, the horror of these kittens covered in blood and guts quickly revealed that there were more that didn't make it.'

The two kittens were treated at the sanctuary and nursed back to health over three months. They are both now up for adoption
