A plane carrying dozens of adoptable dogs crashed on to a snowy Wisconsin golf course. On Tuesday, the aircraft, which was transporting 53 dogs at-risk adoptable dogs from New Orleans to various shelters, made an emergency landing on the golf course (in Pewaukee) about 40 minutes outside of Milwaukee. All the dogs, and the three people on board, sustained injuries but none were life-threatening.
… The plane was badly damaged after plowing through stands of trees on the course. The wings were entirely stripped off, and almost 300 gallons of fuel was spilled. It is unclear what caused the plane to come down. The crash is under investigation by the National Transportation Safety Board and Federal Aviation Administration.
