Dog safe after falling through ice

MADISON (WKOW) -- A different kind of water rescue for crews in Madison Saturday.

A golden retriever fell through the ice just before 4 p.m. at the pond in Warner Park.

Its owner said the dog wandered out on to the ice while chasing after geese. He made it about 150 feet before falling through, and was then unable to climb out.

The stranded K9 was hanging to the ice with its front paws when rescue crews arrived.

Tonight, the retriever, whose name we do not know, is said to be doing fine.
