Dog spotted by drone and rescued in Bahamas after Hurricane Dorian - By Douglas Thron
The islands of the Bahamas were hit by a Category 5 hurricane, with winds up to 185 mph for over 40 hours! While delivering aid and filming the destruction in an effort to bring public awareness, I spotted numerous dogs and cats with my drones and quickly realized this was the most effective way of finding these poor animals before it’s too late. The mountains of debris make it very challenging to find these animals. I have come back to the U.S. to gather more supplies to aid in the rescue of these desperate animals. An infrared drone would help me spot the animals faster in the sea of debris and destruction. I also plan to bring over a 4-wheeler or dirt bike to get around since many of the roads are still unreachable by cars.
