Multiple units of the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office came together earlier this week to save the life of a small dog who was lost and under distress in a Port St. John Lake.
Someone called law enforcement and stated that there was a dog in the middle of a lake at Fay Lake Wilderness Park, and it needed help.
Deputy Michael Hriscio, upon using his binoculars, was able to locate the distressed dog in the middle of the lake. When Animal Enforcement Officers George Wong, Chris Hahn, and Cayla Hanson made it to the scene, they quickly realized they would need a boat to rescue the desperate dog.
Deputy Keith Grosse of our Agricultural/Marine Unit was called out to assist with the agencies airboat. Officer Hanson and Deputy Grosse were able to rescue the small white terrier mix, who was entangled in tall reeds.
The apparent stray was taken to the South Animal Care Center in Melbourne where he received a full examination and was being monitored.
