Coast Guard Rescues Dog Trapped In Shipping Container For Eight Days
February 5, 2024
Today’s good news story comes from Boone County, Kentucky.
In a heartwarming rescue operation off the coast of Houston-Galveston, a U.S. Coast Guard team discovered an unexpected passenger during a routine inspection of shipping containers. The team, led by Petty Officer 2nd Class McMahon, were astonished when they heard barking and scratching emanating from one of the containers.
As they cautiously opened the container, they were greeted by the sight of a small, furry face – a dog trapped inside the dark space. The canine seemed remarkably calm and happy to be liberated from her confined quarters.
“As soon as we opened it, we could see the little dog’s face poking out,” McMahon said. “She just seemed happy more than anything, to be out of that dark space and in the arms of people that were going to take care of her.”
