Police save dog from drowning in Saskatchewan

Mounties in Saskatchewan are being hailed for getting … their dog.

Fort Qu’Appelle RCMP received a call on May 10 about a possible drowning of a dog. Officers responded to the scene and found a male husky trapped in some reeds on the river bank. Police coaxed the animal out with “some food and encouragement,” according to a statement released on Monday.

The husky was taken to the detachment where it was was given food and a place to warm up.  The dog and its owner were reunited later that day. Constables Oman, Dodds and Muirhead were singled out for their efforts in this near misadventure.
