WISCONSIN’S WAUKESHA COUNTY – A twin-engine cargo plane carrying 53 rescue dogs and three adults made an emergency landing at the Western Lakes Golf Club on Tuesday morning.
When the jet crashed barely four miles from the Waukesha County Airport, it carried rescue dogs from Louisiana to shelters in southeast Wisconsin.
According to officials, the pilot and co-pilot are the three people who have left the hospital. Despite several dogs having scrapes and bruises, they are all healthy.
According to Maggie Tate-Techtmann of the Humane Animal Welfare Society of Waukesha County, “the animals are in great, fantastic form. We had our vet on the site yesterday as well as all 53 of the animals were triaged here before heading off to some of our partner shelters yesterday.”
