Coast Guard rescues dog in Sturgeon Bay ship canal

CLEVELAND – The Coast Guard rescued a dog that was in the Sturgeon Bay, Wis., ship canal Friday afternoon.

At 1:45 p.m., members of Coast Guard Station Sturgeon Bay noticed three people who were trying to assist a dog out of the canal near the station.

Members of the ice rescue team from the station launched aboard the station’s ice rescue craft and rescued the dog, transported it to shore, and returned it to its owner.

This rescue occurred near where the Door County Sheriff’s Department rescued five people Thursday who fell through the ice, and the Coast Guard warned residents and visitors of weakening ice due to warming temperatures.

In March, the crew of Coast Guard Cutter Bristol Bay rescued a dog off the ice, and a member of the crew was able to document the rescue with photographs.
