A dog hit by a speeding car and getting stuck in the vehicle’s front bumper miraculously survived the impact and subsequent long ride totally unscathed.
The stray canine was hit in Hunan Province’s Fenghuang County in central China’s, as it jumped out in front of a car. Following the impact, the dog got stuck to the bumper and remained there for another 248 miles of travel, after the driver deemed it too difficult to extricate him.
However, the two have since become best friends, with the driver — named only as Mr. Zhang — claiming that it was “fate” that brought the two together, according to The People’s Daily.
The amazing story of survival started when the dog ran out of some bushes and the driver had no chance of avoiding him.
After striking the canine, Mr. Zhang was convinced that he was dead but then heard noises coming from the front of the car which sounded very much like a dog.
The driver pulled over and to his amazement discovered the dog stuck in the front bumper and staring up at him.
Mr. Zhang recalled:
I was driving pretty quickly at the time so when I hit the dog, I thought it had either died or run away, so I didn’t get out of the car to check. But later, I heard barking from under the car.
There was some distance between the dog and the water tank and its body was held tightly by the bumper.
I didn’t dare to extricate it by myself. I thought it should be safe there, so I drove it all the way back to Loudi.
It escaped from great danger. This really moved me. This shows my fate with the dog.
The dog remained stuck in the car from Fenghuang to Mr Zhang’s hometown Loudi and was only removed from the car after the driver went to a vet clinic for help.
Vets said that the dog was totally uninjured, apart from a few cuts and bruises and shock, and were surprised by his remarkable story of survival.
After getting the good news from the vet, Mr. Zhang took the dog home in a cage in the back of a truck and the two have since become inseparable.
