80-Year-Old Hunter Found by A Police Dog After Falling into A Michigan River

This incident is proof that dogs truly are man’s best friend.

A police dog named Loki helped find an 80-year-old hunter who had often fallen into a river in Michigan. According to a police department press release, Michigan State Police were dispatched to search for the hunter at around 6:40 p.m. on Wednesday.

The statement said the hunter’s wife told police her husband had been following a deer and missing for about three hours. Then, she heard him fire several shots, indicating he was lost.

With the help of K9-Loki of the Police Department’s Houghton Lake Post, the team located the lost hunter along the Au Sable River, which runs through the state’s northern Lower Peninsula.

The man was unhurt but “wet and cold,” according to the press release. He had fallen into the river three times.

The Lovells Township Fire and Rescue Unit hauled the hunter out of the woods to the canoe, who was then taken to a local hospital for treatment. He was discharged from the hospital in “good health,” the statement said.
