Dog Drives Owner’s Pickup Into Lake
A dog left alone in a pickup truck had to be rescued after it knocked the vehicle into gear, sending it into a lake in Maine.
Ellsworth Police say the Yorkshire Terrier’s owner put his pet into the pickup after an encounter with a larger dog. As he spoke to the other dog’s owner, the Chevrolet Silverado began rolling downhill.
He could only watch helplessly as his pickup careened 75ft into Branch Lake on Saturday afternoon. The Silverado bounced off a rock before sinking in 10ft of water.
Police say a family friend swam into the lake and saved the trapped dog.
A towing company was able to pull the truck out.
