Workers with the Rescued 'n Ready Animal Foundation said Marvel was severely anemic and had a tick-borne disease when he was brought in after being found in North Tulsa. After a lot work, he was moved to Tulsa Town Vet and is eating and drinking.

It's unclear how the pipe got around his neck or how long it was there, but they believe it's been since at least summer, Fox23.com reported.
