NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y.(AP)- New York State Park Police battled the swift current above Niagara Falls to rescue a dog who became stranded on an island after being scared off by July 4 fireworks.

Members of the swift water rescue team walked through rapids Friday to get to Little Brother Island, about 100 yards from the brink of Niagara Falls. That's where a visiting veterinarian from Rochester had spotted the white dog, more than a week after it was reported missing by a Lackawanna family that was in Niagara Falls for the Independence Day festivities.

The officers used hamburgers to coax the nervous pooch named Lily to come with them back through the water.

After the two-and-a-half-hour rescue effort, Lily is back with her owners.

With all of the negative in the news what a wonderful happy ending to a heart warming story.

If the owners were black the police would have ticketed them for not having their dog on a leash.

I wonder why your post got a bad "judging".

I really doubt that the police were too concerned about the color of the dog's owners. That was a dumb post. How do you know that the police didn't ticket the owners for not having their dog on a leash? Or maybe he was on a leash and the leash broke. Or maybe the dog was at a nearby "dog park" and he got away to really run wild for a while. You don't know the whole story so you can't ASSume too much.

You ALWAYS, and I do mean ALWAYS try to find something negative on a good thing. That is a very serious medical problem and you should have it look into.
