County Sheriff's Office

Jeremy Taylor, 36, of Sunriver, Ore., was on an off-roading adventure with his dog on February 24 when he got stuck in deep snow.

The sheriff's office said Taylor and his dog, Ally, became stuck in the snow late Sunday.

It turns out, Taylor and his dog Allie had gone off-roading on Forest Service Road 40 near Wake Butte, west of Sunriver, where his vehicle got stuck in the snow. He tried to walk out with his dog but the snow was too deep, so they returned to the vehicle.

An Oregon man who had only taco sauce and melted snow to eat while he was snowed in for five days with his dog is grateful to his rescuer and sorry to have caused so much trouble.

Taylor, an avid outdoorsman who loves to go off-roading, was last seen getting gas on February 24 in Sunriver.

Several species discovered in the suitcases are classified as vulnerable by the International Union for Conservation of Nature. The animals were valued at 4.5 million Philippine pesos, or $87,000, according to a Facebook post from the Bureau.

"I didn't think he was going to come out alive", Janet Main-Jones told the newspaper. He spent a total five days trapped, where he would periodically turn his vehicle on for warmth.

"He's been outdoors. He's familiar with his area", the mother said.

Taylor was eventually discovered by a snowmobiler, according to police officials. The 36-year-old wrote, "Thank you everyone, I'm safe my Ally dog is safe".

"Taco bell fire sauce saves lives", Taylor wrote in response to a friend's Facebook comment. I really appreciate all the help.

The two were found in good condition but hungry, the sheriff's office says, after a search and rescue team member used a snowcat to reach them. Got lucky, lets (sic) never do that again.
