Deputies rescue injured dog stranded on train tracks for days

Oklahoma sheriff’s deputies recently rescued an injured dog that had been stuck on railroad tracks for nearly half a week.

“Deputy Hutton observed a large dog hit by a train and trapped between the tracks,” the department said in a Facebook post.

“Deputy Hutton and Officer Harding determined that it was not possible to send patrols to the injured animal’s location and requested that the Sheriff’s Office line up and proceed to the scene in order to safely transport the animal to the roadway. .”

“It’s okay, it’s okay,” an officer can be heard whispering to the injured animal.
