Mr. Man recovers thanks to the help of CHP officers
SANTA ROSA – According to a Community Bulletin issued by the Santa Rosa Area office of the California Highway Patrol (CHP), a two-officer CHP unit responded to a call of a dog hit on Santa Rosa Avenue just south of Todd Road on Monday evening, November 2nd.
Several uninvolved vehicles had stopped to block the lane where the medium sized dark brown dog was lying. The party that struck the dog was not found.
After determining that the dog had sustained a broken leg, the officers fashioned a sling made from a large plastic bag. They slid it under the dog, which allowed them to load the injured animal into the rear sear of the patrol car. The officers then transported the dog to the emergency animal hospital in Rohnert Park.
Staff at the animal hospital informed the officers that the dog had a chip. This enabled them to determine that the dog belonged to an owner in Nevada. The dog also had a tag, which read “This is Mr. Man.”
As of Tuesday afternoon, the veterinary staff says that Mr. Man is recovering and that they have been in contact with the Nevada Humane Society to track down the owner.
