A New Yorker's attempt to rescue his pet dog went south this month near 43rd Street and 12th Avenue. He proved that he was willing to risk his own safety for the sake of his dog when he jumped into the Hudson River.

However, things quickly turned dangerous for both of them. According to a post made by the NYPD Special Ops team, the man's dog accidentally fell into the murky water. Unable to get out of the river themselves, they needed urgent help.

THE RESCUE MISSION

The NYPD Harbor and ESU came to the scene where they found the man and his dog. The pet owner kept the dog from drowning but found himself in a tight spot. He struggled to keep himself afloat.

The duo was longing to return to dry land, and thankfully they were spotted by witnesses who then called a rescue team. The man and his dog were towed back to safety. They were sopping wet and cold, but they were safe!

WOMAN RESCUES DOG FROM BEAR

This lucky duo underwent a check-up and was given the green light on their health. They escaped a potentially life-threatening incident thanks to quick response teams! A similar incident occurred in Crawford County, Michigan.

In 2020, Heather Willobee noticed that her dog, Lucy, had come face-to-face with a big bear. She was able to get her dog inside but soon realized that Lucy had been injured in the stand-off and needed medical attention.

SAVING HER DOG'S LIFE

With the bear still outside her home, she made as much noise as possible and then made her way to the truck with Lucy. Fortunately, she was able to make it to the vet, who eventually saved her dog's life.

Willobee warned others about keeping bird feeders near their homes. She believed this is what attracted the bear and led to the altercation with her dog. As bizarre as the story sounds, animals often need rescuing.

HUMAN HEROES

In Massachusetts, a deer was trapped in a soccer net this month. Thankfully, a police officer responded to a call and saved the day by going the extra mile. He untangled the net swiftly and provided the animal with some attention.

The Foxborough Police Department explained: "The startled deer was comforted with some water before it eventually rose to its feet and retreated into the woods." Officer Ryan McGrath was one of the human heroes who showed up when an animal needed saving.
