A plane carrying dozens of dogs made an emergency landing at Western Lakes Golf Course in Pewaukee on Tuesday. The Waukesha County Sheriff's Department said in a statement deputies responded around 9 a.m. to the golf course. The plane received "significant" damage and stopped at the third hole of the course. "This was a relatively catastrophic landing where they went through trees. The wings actually came off of the aircraft," said Assistant Chief Matthew Haerter with Lake Country Fire and Rescue. A total of three adults and 53 dogs were on board during the crash, authorities said. All three passengers and some of the dogs received minor injuries. [Photos of the dogs further in this article]. "The pilot and his copilot did an amazing job getting this aircraft on the ground that they did," Haerter said.
