CANADA -- Two men fishing near Cross Lake in Manitoba, Canada, came across a small island with some peculiar castaways on Monday. JR Cook and his friend, Leon, were boating by the island when they heard what sounded like crying. They weren't sure who – or what – it was, and it was getting too dark to investigate. So the two fishing buddies went back the next day, and saw some movement in the brush.
They thought it might be wolves, but what emerged was a much smaller, more playful canine. In all, seven black puppies were traipsing around the remote island, which was otherwise completely uninhabited. Cook says he has no clue how they got there, but he knew the dogs needed help.
