Crews Rescue Dog Trapped in Flooded and Icy Field in Trempealeau County


Thanks to quick work from rescue crews… A dog is safe in Trempealeau County after becoming trapped in icy water.

On Monday, the Trempealeau Sheriff’s Department received a report of a barking dog that appeared to be in distress. When officers arrived to a field in Centerville they noticed the animal appeared to be trapped in a flooded and icy field.

Trempealeau fire and rescue crews were called in. They got an inflatable raft and were able to place the dog on it and push it through the water to safety

“It was really good, a really uplifting moment. The dog was almost giving the rescue guy a hug. He was pretty happy. [He} was tired and cold, but pretty happy. It was a good moment for us,” said Trempealeau County Deputy, Andrew Bilski.

The dog was taken to Best Friend’s Pet Clinic in Galesville where he was checked out.. And is doing well

We’re told the around 10-year-old lab is named Bow and he was set to be reunited with his 
Owner on Tuesday.
