A dog named Mosha, got her leash caught in a Canada Line train’s door, after her owner made it on board. Luckily, she was not hurt, but ran and hid into the tunnel.
"It's any pet owner's worst nightmare," said Constable Amanda Steed with the Metro Vancouver Transit Police.
There were initially concerns that the golden retriever was killed – some social media users reported the dog's leash was caught in the doors when the train pulled away from the station, though Steed could only confirm that the animal somehow ended up on the tracks.
She then was rescued by officers and TransLink staff, who then reunited her with her owner. "Canada Line staff immediately shut down the trains," Constable Amanda Steed of the Metro Vancouver Transit Police told CTV News. "They powered down the tracks, went into the tunnel on foot and searched for the dog."
Mosha was located after about 70 minutes of searching. She was dirty but not seriously injured.
