Dog Survives Being Trapped On Ice For 5 Days (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Gibson the dog disappeared from her Arlington, MA home over a week ago, and her owners probably didn't expect to find her where they did.

Gibson managed to get trapped on an iced-over pond for 5 days.

In this CNN video, an official notes that he is puzzled as to how she got onto the ice because the pond is totally fenced in, and there wasn't a way for an animal to have access into the area.

Rescuers attempted to catch Gibson for 3 days, but she had 160 acres of ice to run around on, and kept managing to evade them. Finally, on Wednesday, a team of nine rescuers were able to catch the pup.

She was returned home to her very thankful owners.
