    Dog stuck on frozen railroad tracks rescued

    Jeremy Majorowicz thought something was wrong when he saw a dog sitting on railroad tracks for at least two hours. But he didn't realize how wrong until he and several other men determined that the gray and white husky had been literally frozen to the ties in below zero weather.

    The construction worker first saw the dog on the tracks before his crew called off work for the day Monday because of the cold, and headed to a restaurant. But the dog was still there when they returned 1 1/2 hours later.

    He approached the dog, and offered it a bit of a muffin, but the animal wouldn't bite.

    "I have two dogs myself, so I didn't want to leave the dog if there was something wrong," Majorowicz said, so he called the police.

    Police Officer Tim Strand said the dog was "shivering unmercifully" when he arrived and would not come to him, so he called animal control officer Al Heyde.

    Heyde hooked the dog around the neck with a catch pole in an attempt to capture the dog, but it would not budge.

    Strand then determined the dog was frozen to the railroad ties.

    "I lifted his tail and hind quarters, and saw he was literally frozen to the tracks," Strand said. "He was pretty hunkered down."

    Strand pulled hard on the dog's tail, and was able to release him, but he said the move pulled a lot of hair from the dog.

    A train was scheduled to pass across the tracks about 10 minutes after the rescue was completed.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    This story happened in Wisconsin. I'm from Green Bay . The dog has been adopted by a nice family - I heard it on the new last night..

    My question is how did the dog get frozen to the tracks? Hopefully someone didn't do it intentionally.

    And the owner saw the dog on the tracks for two hours and thought nothing of it?

    I'm glad the mutt is home safe.
