Another icy rescue in Bend. Recently it was an elk that fell thru the ice this morning a dog was rescued. Bend Fire officials responded to the report of a dog out on the ice in Mirror Pond. Upon arrival they found a dog sitting on the ice near the middle of the river. After walking around for a few minutes, he fell through the ice. A firefighter in a dry suit, tethered to the shore, proceeded across the ice and rescued the dog, bringing him to shore without incident. Bend Fire warns you never walk on ice on the river, do not allow animals on the ice, and do not attempt to rescue animals on the ice. Instead, call the fire department: we are trained and equipped to handle this type of incident.
