Fact or Fiction?

Oh no, a dog owner recently lost their dog! According to police, firefighters, and the Coast Guard, the dog was in danger of the high tides off the coast of Hampshire, England. The owner thought this would be the end of seeing her pet, but one of the rescuers had a different idea. In order to save her, they decided to use a drone and tie a sausage on a string to the drone. Knowing the instincts of dogs, this seemed like a fantastic idea to solve the problem! Once they flew the drone to the spot the dog was, it was an instant success. The dog, step by step, followed the hanging sausage out of the treacherous waters. Eventually, they got her far enough from the tides to pick her up and take her home to safety. It’s crazy that such an out-of-the-box idea could work!

UPDATE: According to BBC news, a flying sausage actually helped save a dog in Hampshire, England! Crazy, right?!
