Deschutes County, OR-A man and his dog were trapped in the snow, but Taco Bell sauce saved their lives.
Last Sunday, Jeremy R. Taylor and his dog Ally went to get gas for his Toyota 4Runner, but Taylor’s SUV got stuck in the snow. Taylor fell asleep and when he woke up on Monday there was even more snow, and they couldn’t even get out of the vehicle. Taylor tried to walk out with his dog, but the snow was so deep which made it hard to walk, so they walked back to the vehicle. The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office in Bend, OH said they put out a missing person’s alert out for Taylor on Wednesday. Taylor told police that he stayed warm by “periodically starting his vehicle and used a few Taco Bell sauce packets he had as food.”
On Friday, a snowmobile rider called 911 saying they saw Taylor. Police responded with an Oregon Water Resource SnowCat, a construction vehicle, and were able to dig out Taylor and his dog. Taylor and his dog were found in good condition, but were hungry after being stuck in the snow for five days.
