Troopers Honored For Helping Woman Track Down Dog

Posted: Updated:

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - Two Michigan State Police troopers have been honored by Gov. Rick Snyder after they helped find a dog that ran from its owner after a traffic crash.

The Ann Arbor News reports that Abbye Klamann and her dog Seamus were on their way to Detroit Metro Airport late on Jan. 6 when she lost control of her vehicle on Interstate 94 in Ypsilanti Township.

She says the mix breed dog got away in the aftermath in minus-15 degree temperatures. Klamann and Trooper Anthony Young found him more than 4 miles away and with help Trooper Patrick Gallagher, they all got back safely.

Klamann wrote to Colonel Kriste Etue of the Michigan State Police to express her gratitude. That resulted in the troopers being recognized by Snyder.
