NEW YORK, March 17 (UPI) — Authorities in New York state said a dog rescued from the thawing ice of Lake Erie had to be rescued a second time when he sprinted back onto the ice.

The Erie County Sheriff’s Department said the dog was first spotted Monday night on the ice near Westfield. The department’s Air One Helicopter tracked the canine down Tuesday morning and Capt. Kevin Caffery was lowered from the chopper to rescue the dog, WGRZ-TV, Buffalo, N.Y., reported Wednesday.

However, Caffery said the dog fled shortly after being turned over to the Westfield Fire Department and had to be rescued from the ice a second time.

The captain said the incident was an opportunity for rescuers to keep their skills sharp in the event of a human in similar danger.

The dog, which belonged to a Farnham man, had been missing for four or five days. He was taken a veterinarian to be checked out.
