    Default Two Dogs Run Onto Major Deegan, One Injured

    I've just seen this on local Oz TV:

    Two Dogs Run Onto Major Deegan, One Injured


    WABC 7 has Newscopter 7 footage of two dogs that ran onto the Major Deegan Expressway and reports: "Just before 6:30 a.m., a 9-year-old male yellow lab chow mix ran onto the Major Deegan Expressway and was hit by a car at exit 3. That's when another dog ran to the rescue, right there on the busy highway. Like a protective parent, the dog wouldn't let anyone near. Barking at traffic and police, even as they tried to help." The police eventually managed to get the injured dog into a cruiser and tried to catch the other dog, but the pup took off. The injured dog, who has a broken leg and maybe internal bleeding, was taken to Animal Car & Control in East Harlem. The dogs' owner called AC&C after seeing the pooches on TV and picked up the injured dog and took him to the an animal hospital (he said the other dog was back at home).

    This morning a 9-year-old female yellow lab-chow mix ran onto the Major Deegan Expressway and was hit by a car close to exit 3. Soon after, another dog, apparently her son, ran to her rescue and would not let officers near her. Then, the dog ran off leading cops on a high-speed chase. The owner of the two dogs saw it all on T.V., and she went to animal care and control in East Harlem where the dogs were being held. The female dog is now at a pet hospital with a broken leg, but she’s expected to recover.

    A heart-warming story.

    I hope the dogs are both okay, and that the owner learns to keep an eye on her pets instead of the television set in the future.
