A hunter last week rescued 20 abandoned puppies found in boxes and left for dead.

Greg Zubiak found the puppies in a Canadian field, where the humane society suspects they were left as bait for coyotes.

They need medical care, but are expected to be OK.

There’s already a lot of interest in adopting the pups into their forever homes.
