Husky Rescued

Cats in trees and baby ducklings in storm drains aren’t God’s only creatures the Fond du Lac Fire Department has to assist from time to time. A 6-month-old husky went down the basement stairs of a home at 463 South Main Street Wednesday evening and got stuck in a diked in area. The area was about 8 foot by 8 foot and 4 feet deep. Division Chief Troy Haase says firefighter Keith Wendt climbed in with the frightened dog and began petting it and giving it treats to calm it down. It worked and the dog was reunited with its owner.
