Warsaw - The brown-eyed dog was abandoned on Poland's highest mountain, possibly taken there to die. Instead, he found new friends and a new life.

Using ropes and chains, a group of climbers found him and carried the frightened 10kg animal down from the craggy, icy mountain peak.

Anna Plaszczyk, an animal rights activist, said she believes the black-and-tan mongrel could not have made it up the 2 500m high Rysy mountain by himself and was taken there to die.

She says "it was a death sentence". She is urging any witnesses to come forward and wants prosecutors to file charges of possible animal cruelty.

Dariusz Slaby, one of the climbers, said the rescue on Friday in Poland's Tatra mountains took about 10 hours.
