According to Burke County Search And Rescue, a group of mountain bikers on Sunday were on the North Carolina trail when they spotted the dog. They were riding the Sinkhole Trail at Pisgah National Forest, about 50 miles (80 kilometres) south of Asheville.

The bikers immediately called for help and brought the rescuers to the stranded animal. The rescuers then went inside the sinkhole and enticed the starving and dehydrated animal a salty snack. After that, they used a harness to bring the dog to safety.

The rescuers posted about the operation on their Facebook page.
