Hero Trooper Rescues Dog on I-95 in Westchester
A dog loose on I-95 in Westchester was rescued by Trooper George Spiconardi, of the New Rochelle barracks. He was helped by New York State Thruway Maintenance and Help trucks.
While the trucks slowed traffic on the busy road Trooper Spiconardi was able to get the dog, named Bou.
Bou is back with his family. New York State Police say Bou injured all four paws during the ordeal but "he's expected to make a full recovery!"
The NYSP posted a note on social media thanking Trooper Spiconardi "for helping to reunite Bou with his worried family!"
We know how important pets are to their people, and we thank Trooper Spiconardi and all of those who made this reunion possible!
Fans of the Utica Comets - and Comet - can appreciate this.
