OSHKOSH — As the weather continues to warm up, ice continues to thaw out.

On Monday, Winnie the dog was rescued from thin ice on Lake Winnebago by a multitude of first responders.

According to the post, rescuing Winnie was challenging because there were large pockets of open water where the ice had thawed.

Humane Officer Richards was on standby with a buoy in case he fell through the ice. Several community members even offered to go in the freezing water, if needed.

After an hour or so, the dog was finally rescued and taken to the Oshkosh Humane Society.
