Wichita police pull frightened dog from overpass

KSAL StaffJuly 6, 2014

A photo of Wichita police officers rescuing a 6-month-old German shepherd from an overpass helped reunite the frightened animal with his owners.

The Wichita Eagle reports an officer was writing a ticket near the overpass at Kellogg and Tyler Road on Friday night when he saw the dog, named Harley, on the overpass ledge.

Police say the dog had been frightened by fireworks being shot off near its home and somehow got on the ledge, 32 feet above a highway where people sometimes drive 70 or 80 mph.

Four officers managed to get the dog off the ledge, but the spooked animal ran off and had to be corralled by several police cars.

A photo of the rescue was posted online, which is how its owners tracked it down.
