"This dog was screaming and crying and going crazy," Arens told the Great Falls Tribune. He still had packages to deliver, but as a dog owner himself with a "weakness for animals," he couldn't just drive away.Arens steered his brown truck to the other side of a pond and saw tragedy about to happen. A dog was surrounded by ice about 10 or 15 feet from the shore. An older man in a row boat was frantically chipping at the ice, but he wasn't having much luck. The sheriff's and animal control officers were on the way, but Arens didn't didn't think the dog would last that long.
WEST WYOMING After searching relentlessly for her missing cat for two weeks, Joanne Austin was about to give up hope. Then a friend sent her a photo Friday of a West Wyoming public works employee who had just rescued a cat from a stormwater drain. The borough police department had posted the photo on Facebook, saying people had heard a cat meowing from underground and called 911. That was her Frezno, a rescue cat she adopted nine years ago. Only problem, she was told the frightened cat darted off after clawing the worker as he tried to get out of the storm drain on Washington Avenue. Austin cruised the neighborhood looking for Frezno with little luck. Moments after she pulled into her driveway to make a phone call, she heard tapping on her driver s side window. It was her neighbor who found the cat sitting on a porch in the neighborhood. She knocked on the window of my car and she had him. It was quite the reunion. I was in tears, Austin said. She took Frezno inside and he was happy to be home with his loved ones. He was at my feet and he would not leave, Austin said. As of Friday afternoon, Austin was taking Frezno to his veterinarian for a check up. The cat escaped two weeks ago while Austin s husband, Allen, was taking down Christmas decorations. We have been searching for him for two weeks. We were giving up a little. He was down in that storm drain while we were driving around the streets looking under everyone s bushes. People probably thought we were crazy. Thank God they found him. He could have died down there, Austin said. He mean so much to us. He was a rescue kitty. He s our little fur baby. West Wyoming police Chief Curtis Nocera said several students at a nearby bus stop heard the cat crying from down in the stormwater drain and called 911. He heard the cat upon his arrival and asked the borough s public works crews to try to rescue the cat. The workers removed the stormwater grate and entered the drain. The cat was about 15 feet down a pipe under the road. The worker used a laser to coax the cat to come to him, Nocera said. As the worker, John Scholz, was bringing the cat the surface, the cat clawed him and ran off. Luckily, the cat was located a few minutes later, Nocera said. The chief noted cats have been rescued from various places before, but this is a new one for him. I ve never taken a cat out of a sewer before, Nocera said.
