Stray animals are always at risk of being injured by people as well as vehicles. Darting across streets to find shelter or the next garbage can for a meal, they don’t practice the etiquette of looking both ways first.
That often leads to serious injuries and most likely death, if they’re not able to receive immediate emergency care. But one dog managed to survive being hit by a train, thanks to the quick efforts of one police officer. Kevin McCullen received a call about a dog who had just been hit by a train and looked like she was in for the worst.
On arriving at the scene, he found Molly, looking pretty banged up after her ordeal. She had already lost one leg, part of her tail, and almost half of her blood as gone from her system.
