Loggers Cut Open A Tree, And Found A Body Of A Dog Locked There For 60 Years


There are some things loggers expect to encounter when cutting down trees. Bird nests items stuck in the branches seem to be given. The dog mummified in the center of the tree, however, is not.

But that’s exactly what Georgia Kraft Corp., a group of loggers, discovered in the 1980s while cutting down trees.

Loggers were working on a chestnut oak grove in southern Georgia when they found the most unusual sight.

After cutting the top of the tree and loading it onto a truck, the team member accidentally looked at the hollow trunk. Inside, he found a magnificent dog mummy looking back at him, still bare teeth, struggling to survive.

Experts who examined the body concluded that the kitten was most likely a hunting dog from the 1960s that chased something like a squirrel from the root hole to the center of a hollow tree.

The higher the dog, the narrower the tree. Experts from the position of the dog’s paws believe that it continued to climb until it was stuck. Unable to turn around, the dog died.

Due to perfect circumstances, however, even though it was dead, it was not forgotten.

Normally, a dead dog in the wild would decompose and eat other food. However, since the dog died in the tree, it was unlikely that other animals would reach it, and because of its height, other animals could hardly smell it.

In addition, the type of tree in which the dog was housed has a unique qualification for adapting to the natural mummification process. Chestnut oak contains tannins, which are used in taxidermy tanning to treat animal skins so that they do not decompose.

The tannins penetrated the inside of the tree into the dog, not allowing it to rot from the inside.

The dry environment inside the trunk also protected from the elements, absorbing moisture from the corpse.

The air that was absorbed through the base into the tree created a kind of vacuum effect, which further facilitated the drying process.

After finding the mummified cub, the loggers decided to take it to a museum to show the world a rare sight.

The dog, now affectionately called “Stuckie”, lives in the Southern Forest World Museum, still wrapped in his wooden grave and displayed for the world to see.

After learning about the Stump Dog, look at this nodosaur dinosaur mummy found with intact skin and intestines.

Then read about this Inca ice mummy, one of the best-preserved mummies in the world. Finally, read the story of Balto, the dog who saved the city of Alaska.
