The Detroit Free Press had this story, with photographs from the U.S. Coast Guard:
A canine very likely set out toward a frozen destiny is out of the virus subsequent to being saved by a U.S. Coast Guard shaper from the cold surface of Lake St. Clair.
The ship’s crew named him Lucky.
Chief Petty Officer Alan Haraf said the cutter Bristol Bay was on the lake Monday morning heading north to help another vessel stuck in ice when a lookout noticed what appeared to be a group of foxes in the distance. As the ship moved closer, it became clear that one animal was larger than the rest.
Haraf said three petty officers suited up in weather-resistant gear and left the ship to help the dog, which was on the ice about 4½ to 5 miles off shore from the area between Jefferson Beach Marina and Lake Front Park in St. Clair Shores. They placed it on a stretcher-like device and moved to the ship. The other animals scurried away, Haraf said.
“It was cold, weak and tired,” he said. “It may have been out there for a couple of days or so.
