Last week, a man from Oregon and his dog were trapped in a car for five days with nothing to subsist on but hot sauce.
On February 24, Jeremy Taylor and his dog Ally went for a drive on a service in Wake Butte, near Taylor’s home in Sun River, Oregon. However, as they were driving, his vehicle became stuck in the snow, per the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office.
In a news release posted to Facebook, the Sheriff’s office said that Taylor “attempted to walk out on Monday,” but could not, as more snow had accumulated. Instead, they returned to the car.
Because Taylor didn’t have a mobile phone with him and could not contact anyone, he and Ally were effectively trapped, CBS reported.
So for the next five days, the duo did the best they could. Occasionally, Taylor would turn the car on for heat, per the Sheriff’s office. And as for food? Well, the only thing Taylor had in his car was hot sauce. Taco Bell Fire Sauce, to be exact, he wrote in a comment on Facebook.
In Oregon, these situations aren’t too uncommon. Public information officer Sgt. William Bailey told CBS News that they “assist people fairly frequently that are stuck or need assistance in the snow.”
And since being rescued, Taylor and Ally are doing just fine.
“Jeremy and Ally were found to be in good condition, but hungry after being stuck in the snow for five days,” the sheriff’s office wrote in the statement.
Taylor has since been reunited with his family and friends.
“Thank you, everyone, I’m safe, my Ally dog is safe,” he wrote on Facebook. “I really appreciate all the help. Got lucky, lets never do that again.”
