Chicago's finest rescue dog from dangerously thin ice on Lake Michigan1/23/2013
Chicago officers spent nearly three hours trying to rescue a dog from thin ice in Lake Michigan after the pooch dashed out in an attempt to get at some Canadian geese near the shore. A witness reported the dog about 300 yards out in the city's Jackson Harbor, sitting calmly on ice that was measured to be only 2 inches thick. Officials tried to coax the dog to one side of a pier, but their progress was thwarted when the dog would continually move out toward a flock of geese sitting in open water. Eventually, the dog got close enough to animal control officers that they were able to tranquilize it and pull it to safety. [Source]
