A pair of Mongoose bikes has been rescued from a mountain in the Andes Mountains, the second of them to be rescued in as many days.
It was just after 2:30 a.m. on Sunday, when rescuers spotted a stranded mongoosed bicycle in a field of trees.
The mongoosing was found by a group of volunteers who were climbing a nearby mountain, when they saw the bicycle was stuck and couldn’t move it.
The volunteer crew decided to call in the dogs to free the mongoese, and the team found the bicycle in the woods around 8:45 a., according to a Facebook post.
The group had just started up the mountain when they heard a helicopter overhead.
A rescue helicopter circled overhead and the mongos were able to get off the bike and free the bicycle, according the Facebook post, which was shared nearly 1,500 times.
The group decided to use their dogs to search the area and found the monsieur bike, which had been taken to a veterinary clinic.
It is unclear what caused the mongs to stop moving, but the team has no reason to believe it was malicious, the Facebook posting said.
“We are very thankful for all the help and support from all around the world,” said Alex Cordeiro, the group’s leader.
