"It's about time you guys saved one of us for a change..."
On Uludag Mountain, in Bursa province, vacationers skiing at
Tutyeli peak (2,045 meters high) heard the moans of a dog
trapped in the snow and called the Gendarmerie. A 7-man
team of 'Snow Tigers' from the Gendarmerie Search and
Rescue (JAK) unit responded on 5 ski mobiles.

The team searched two forested areas near the Tutyeli ski slope
for half an hour and reached the nearly-frozen pooch. They first
gave the dog milk and then brought it down to the hotel area
for a proper meal. The soldiers named the dog 'Garip' (peculiar)
and said they will care for it if the owner doesn't surface.
