Holt and Kat Perry, the snowmobilers who rescued the puppies, say it was “just dumb luck” when they found the freezing puppies who were living out of a sheep’s carcass, KSTU reported.
The couple was snowmobiling on a Weber County mountaintop when they discovered the puppies and a mother dog five miles away from the nearest road on Saturday.
“I’m not going to leave any animal on the mountain to starve, especially, it was obvious she had pups,” Kat Perry said.
The couple successfully rescued three puppies but failed to rescue the mother dog despite their efforts.
Weber County Search and Rescue happened to be in the area to assist in bringing the puppies off the mountain.
