I have been waiting for the video of this amazing rescue to appear online, but a story in The Miami Herald today tells the whole story very well.

Manuela Schaefer, who lives in South Carolina, is also a fan, and when her efforts to capture a stray living in the woods failed, she called on Eldad for his help. So he flew across the country and, via social media, assembled a team of volunteers to get the job done.
