Firefighters in Peshtigo had to use an inflatable device to rescue a dog that fell through thin ice. The Peshtigo Fire Department posted on its Facebook page about a recent incident where a dog fell through the ice and into the Peshtigo River. The incident happened on December 5 around 10:30 a.m. The ice was reportedly thin, which made it hard for crews to reach the dog. The department used an inflatable Rapid Deployment Craft to complete the rescue. Authorities say the dog was safely brought back to shore and put in a blanket. The owner of the dog took it to a veterinary clinic to be checked out. Firefighters did want to caution people about walking on the ice. It was mentioned that the ice is currently too thin to walk on in many areas.
