Scene of all scenes, in November a dog was seen riding on top of a boxcar of the Kansas City Southern Railway. When the train was moving he would lie down. Pearl Mississippi Animal Control officers Heather Rodgers and Chuck Loper were called to rescue the dog. After arranging for a forklift with a pallet, KC was safely lowered to the ground.
The Mississippi Animal Rescue League is now trying to find KC a home. He's an Australian shepherd/border collie mix, and he's apparently in quite fine fettle.
(H/t my brother, Brian, who's a bit of a hobo himself.)
