Ok so the title of the post seems a little mean spirited at first. But read the story, then you will get it. [url]http://dailynews.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story2&cid=573&ncid=757&e=2&u=/nm/20020716/od_nm/dog_dc_1[/url]
Yahoo - News Cop Breathes Life Into Stricken Dog Tue Jul 16, 9:53 AM ET WEST BRIDGEWATER, Mass. (Reuters) - A police officer brought a stricken dog back to life by performing mouth-to-mouth resuscitation on her furry muzzle after she was hit by a car, the officer said on Monday. Patrolman Thomas Richmond said Cinnamon the pit bull terrier was technically dead and her owner was "hysterical" when he arrived at the scene of the accident last Wednesday. "She had been hit in the chest area. All four of her legs went out and her heart was not beating. She was dead," the officer told Reuters. Richmond, who owns a dog himself, immediately started to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on the lifeless pooch, alternately pressing on her chest and breathing into her muzzle. "It took me seven or eight tries but to my amazement, she opened her eyes and started breathing," he said, adding that he then transported Cinnamon to a local animal hospital. "She's fine. She has some nerve damage but no broken bones. It's a miracle," he said.

An awesome story to follow up the "JACKASS" joke that I read earlier. I'm glad the pitbull didn't bite him, especially since it was pretty banged up.

Then the FBI shot the pitbull in the face after mistaking it for a timber wolf.

it was probably to weak to to much of anything when it started to breath again.

Was this cop a Canadian by any chance? He wasn't? American, you say, eh?

That was followed by the ATF showing up and burning down the animal shelter. It seems the poodles were smuggling guns to todlers at the daycare across the street. [:D]

Then both agencies asked for understanding regarding the "mistaken identity", said it was unavoidable, and said they could not be held responsible for their actions in the line of duty.
