City of Tomahawk Mayor Steve Taskay and Police Chief Al Elvins join the Tomahawk City Council last Tuesday in recognizing Terry Tee Collins Jr. for his efforts in saving a family pet that had fallen through the ice on Bridge Street Feb. 8. Police were dispatched to the 1600 block of Bridge Street for a dog in the water. Upon arrival they learned that a 10-month-old male Bernese Mountain dog had fallen through the ice some 20 minutes earlier and the owner was unable to get the animal out. Offi cers and Collins, a family friend, walked onto the Jersey Flowage to assess the situation. Collins then placed several pieces of wood near the dog and was able to pull the pet from the icy water. It was treated for hypothermia and has since fully recovered. The family was already dealing with another pet
dogs death that day, it was noted.
