A Mississippi man really ended up barking up the wrong tree when he went into the woods to find his lost dog and ended up dangling from a branch, stark naked.
Shane Treadway had been hanging upside down alongside a heavily wooded county road for more than four hours when his girlfriend who had come looking for him and heard his calls for help. She ran to the nearest home and roused resident Jerry Feathers. He later reported that, “a lady came running down my brother’s drive, so I go out there to help after about three minutes in the woods I saw this man hanging upside down in the tree butt naked.”
Treadway told officers he climbed the tree in search of his pooch and ended up falling through the branches, losing his clothing on the way down. He couldn’t explain the cables that were wrapped around him, however
