A dog was chased to safety by a fire department https://www.cityofmadison.com/fire/daily-reports/2024-02-07/lake-rescue-responds-to-lake-monona-for-dog-on-the-ice?fbclid=IwAR1TIRbmTedmm6D43FsZB-tWlnsdP0qADHv3on6pEJCvA1BMZmLfvzl6txM airboat after running onto a frozen lake in Wisconsin on February 7, with video by a kayaker showing the incident. "While kayaking on a small patch of open water on Lake Monona I saw the Madison Fire Department Lake Rescue Team's airboat working to 'herd' a runaway dog on thinning ice to the safety of the shore," John Stofflet told Storyful. The Madison Fire Department https://www.cityofmadison.com/fire/daily-reports/2024-02-07/lake-rescue-responds-to-lake-monona-for-dog-on-the-ice?fbclid=IwAR1TIRbmTedmm6D43FsZB-tWlnsdP0qADHv3on6pEJCvA1BMZmLfvzl6txM said that the dog was around three-quarters of a mile offshore when they found it. According to Stofflet, the dog ran back to shore after being shooed in that direction by the airboat, but then jumped back into the water and swam towards his kayak. Stofflet said he put on his best "Dad voice" to shout "Go back" to the dog. "Poor thing wasn't going to mess with a 'crazy kayaker'," he said. It "turned around and headed back to its owners on shore. What an ordeal for that pooch, but all's well that ends well," Stofflet https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=894631688814906 wrote on Facebook.
