Wyoming — A Wyoming man goes to great lengths to save his best friend.

Bobby Jenkins' 11-year-old labrador named "Tank" was bitten on the nose by a rattlesnake.

Jenkins says it was 20 minutes to the nearest town and he knew the dog wouldn't make it, so he grabbed the dogs nose and sucked the poison out.

He was able to flag down a neighbor who gave them a ride to town and in the end tank was saved.

Although the vet said sucking out the venom was the wrong thing to do Jenkins says he knows his actions saved Tank.

It is so nice to see a story of sacrifice for animal rescue instead of another animal abuse/neglect story.

Thank you for this story! I would never blame a guy for doing what seems obvious at the time. My Mal pup fell through a frozen lake on his first birthday. You just go into overdrive and do what's right. Angels watch when this happens. Godspeed to this man!
