This is the heartwarming moment three terrified puppies are rescued from a bag hidden in a bush, in Norma, Italy.
The puppies, one black and two white, can be seen quivering and were visibly shaken up by the traumatic incident.
Susanna Bergamaschi, an animal rescue volunteer, found the petrified little pups while she was out walking.
She said: “I was out walking with a friend when I came across a dog walker who said he’d heard noises coming from a hedge, and indicated at the place where the noises were coming from.
“We walked over and saw a plastic bag entangled in a fence. The dog walker managed to untangle the bag and once we got it back to the road we opened it and saw the puppies inside!”
Knowing that they were helpless and afraid, Susanna said she simply had to take them home and feed them as soon as she could.
She said: “I took them home and from here, their life will begin.”
