Bombardier Simon Saliba and Lance Bombardier Antoine Dalli, soldiers from the Armed Forces of Malta Plant and Field Troop 3rd Regiment, were sent to ta Qali on Wednesday to help Animal Welfare Officers free a trapped puppy.
Through cooperation between soldiers, animal welfare officers and civilians, four pylons were each carefully lifted, taking care the puppy was not injured any further. The puppy was successfully freed from its concrete trap without serious injury amid the scorching heat at 3.00pm.
The dog was taken to Centru San Frangisk Animal Welfare Centre in Ta Qali for further assistance. Animal Welfare Officer Miss Fiorita Sammut and Director Mr Joseph John Vella thanked the AFM for its assistance and expressed ‘sincerest heart felt gratitude’ to the soldiers for their efforts and timely intervention.
