That day, 3-year-old Karina Chikitova from Yakutia was going to visit her father, who lives in a neighboring village. The girl’s road lay through a deep forest, but her mother was not worried — the baby had made this journey more than once. Anyway, when she reached the neighboring village, she did not find Dad at home. Karina decided to look for her father in the forest.
Even grown men have never entered that forest without guns, because it is full of wolves and bears. When Karina and her little dog did not return home a few hours later, it became clear to the parents that their daughter was between life and death.
Group after group of rescuers endlessly combed kilometers of the Siberian forest. To no avail. 10 days have passed, and parents have already begun to get used to the idea of the worst outcome of events.
Everything changed on the 11th day, when the girl’s little dog returned home. Rescuers thought that the girl’s pet had left her in the forest because she died, but the dog, after going home, hurried back into the dense thicket. The parents understood — it is necessary to follow the dog.
After walking several kilometers behind the animal, rescuers suddenly saw a little girl in the tall grass. Karina, alive and well, looked at them with frightened eyes. The baby was incredibly exhausted, hungry and cold, but she was in her right mind.
Karina’s parents were waiting for her at home. Later, the girl told how she ate berries, leaves and grass to survive. A real heroine! The little girl’s brave dog drove away wolves and bears with his barking. Together they warmed each other for ten long nights, until one day the dog returned home again.
Thanks to the dog, Karina’s story got a happy ending.At the moment, the little girl has almost completely recovered from her difficult adventure. The little faithful friend is still with her.
