Dog That Fell Through Thin Ice Gets Rescued

"Our Deputies are out there to keep the public safe. That also includes our furry family as well," tells sheriff Bartlett to NEWS 10 after rescuing a dog that feel through thin ice into the water, and we are so, so thankful that they came to rescue the pooch as fast as they did.

This could have ended up as any pet owner's worst nightmare, but luckily, this story has a happy ending. In the recent weeks, officials in the area have been warning the residents about the dangers of thin ice, and sadly, we found out that it's not just us humans who are at risk of falling through it. Shortly before noon on Friday, in Ancram, N.Y., the police got a call about a dog who fell through the ice. 

As NEWS 10 reports, Sergeant Heath Benansky, who is also a dog handler, was the first officer on the scene and successfully managed to get to the scared pup using a paddle board. He along with Deputy Torchia rescued the dog.  

"I am very happy to have such a well trained ice rescue team that was able to deploy so quickly. Had they not gotten there so fast, there could have been a much sadder outcome," said sheriff Bartlett.

The pooch was later identified as "Andy" and was returned safely to shore, and after finding Andy's owner through social media, she was returned to her owner as well. 

This is a lesson for all of us to learn to be more careful with our precious little pets, and thankfully, this lesson was learned with no permanent harm caused. It's the kind of happy ending story that we love to read about, and for more of those, read about an owl with three gunshot wounds getting released back into the wild

Horse Was Rescued After Being Trapped In Ice For Four Hours

Natalia Teplova, a horse owner in Edmonton, Canada, noticed one of her horses was missing when she called for them on Saturday morning. The missing horse, Lexi, didn't show up with the other horses.

"We went calling for the horses and usually they come up. This time, the other horses came up but she wasn't there," Teplova told CTV News.

As any concerned animal owner would do, Natalia and her husband began a small search party and set out to scour the area around their property, and find Lexi. They searched and searched and nearly decided to give up looking for Lexi that is until Natalia's husband horse he had been riding called out, and Lexi responded. 

"Then he called again and she responded again, and I started running," Teplova said. They found Lexi have been trapped, full submerged in ice-cold water. "Her head was sticking out above the ice. She was submerged all the way to her withers—her shoulders. Her front feet were out. She was barely holding up there."

Teplova called 911 for assistance, and she and others slid ropes around Lexi's body to prevent her from sinking any further. And just to give some clarity as to just how freezing this water was, Teplova added, "I put my hands in just to get the ropes around, in the water, and within seconds, my hand went numb. So that was very, very cold."

Together with the firefighting units, they were about to successfully pull out Lexi -- along with a bobcat! 

It was estimated that Lexi had been trapped in the ice water for at least six hours.
