Riverside, CA, resident Ramon Llamas and his dog, Mole, regularly hike on Mount Rubidoux in Riverside County. It’s their routine, three to four times a week, according to KABC-TV. Mole likes to scramble off the trail on his own and check things out.
But this time, Mole found a hiker who had been trapped for four to six days, without food, and far enough from the paved portion of trail that nobody could hear his cries for help. The trail receives a constant stream of hikers, some with baby strollers, out for daily exercise, but they were all out of range.
“[Mole] likes to go look in the rocks and he kind of pulled me over, pulling and crying and I said, ‘What’s going on boy?'” Llamas said.
