Email News Alerts

It was Shadow's incessant barking that alerted Nicole Moore Wednesday night.

The black Lab mix has a tendency to woof at strangers in the driveway, but she was carrying on and on.


Nicole poked her head out the door of her Lower Bottle Lake home to shush the dog when she heard sounds from the lake.

"Mrs. Naylor was yelling 'Help, help, help me,'" Nicole recalled.
