Dog frightened by train, jumps into lake and gets stuck in a yard of mud

On March 22, in a village in Pewaukee, Wisconsin, a stray dog got stuck in about three feet of cold, muddy water. Frightened and exhausted, firefighters attempted to extricate him from his deadly blanket.

The ice in the Wisconsin area lakes recently melted, much to this Labradoodle’s chagrin. While trotting on a train track, the 3-year-old male was frightened by an oncoming train, reports the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel . He immediately took his paws to his neck. In an excess of panic, he unfortunately rushed into the muddy bed of one of these famous lakes.

When the rescue team, led by Andy Norris , arrived around 4 p.m., the quadruped was shaking all over and looking restless.
