Coast Guard Rescues Dog From Ice On Lake St. Clair

Posted: Updated:

ST CLAIR SHORES, Mich. (AP) - The crew of a U.S. Coast Guard cutter that rescued a dog from the ice on Lake St. Clair is giving the animal an appropriate name: "Lucky."

The Coast Guard says the crew of the 140-foot Bristol Bay on Monday hoisted the dog aboard and gave it food and care before taking it to an animal shelter.

Chief Petty Officer Alan Haraf says the Detroit-based Bristol Bay had been heading to help another vessel stuck in ice that day. Haraf said three crew members suited up in weather-resistant gear and left the ship to help the dog.

Haraf says the dog was "cold, weak and tired" and may have been on the ice for days. It had a harness and collar but no identifying tag.
