Colorado Swimmers Come To The Rescue Of Prairie Dog Who Was Drowning


Is this heroic? You be the judge. Two teens were at swim team practice at the Araphoe YMCA in Lafayette, Colorado when they spotted a prairie dog at the bottom of the pool. They got the animal out of the water and then took turns giving it chest compressions. Their swim coach says he was shocked when the animal began to move, water came out of its nose and mouth, and it eventually scurried away. Still, a spokesman for Colorado Parks and Wildlife says they don't advise people give CPR to wild animals, and says people should instead call their local animal control.
