A dog in Michigan was rescued just in time after she was found Friday in a dumpster on its way to a landfill.

The dog, a mixed-breed female, tumbled out with the trash when a roll-off dumpster was emptied at a Detroit transfer station, WXYZ reported. The garbage was headed to the landfill.

Detroit Pit Crew Dog Rescue was called and took the dog to a veterinarian to be examined. The dog, named Parlay by her rescuers, did not appear to be injured from her harrowing dumpster journey. She also is heartworm negative and is not pregnant, though rescuer Theresa Sumpter told WXYZ that she thinks Parlay may have given birth recently.

Sumpter said she frequently sees dogs being abandoned after giving birth. She said the person who placed Parlay in the dumpster was, "really an idiot, truly a moron."

Parlay exhibits sweet and gentle behavior. She can be seen receiving a bath in a video posted on the Detroit Pit Crew Dog Rescue Facebook page. Parlay will spend time in a foster home until she is medically cleared, and then will be available for adoption.

Raccoon released after scaling 25-story skyscraper, capturing hearts nationwide

Raccoon Goes Viral After Scaling Skyscraper

A raccoon's captivating climb up the side of a 25-story Minnesota high-rise came to a happy ending Wednesday after the fuzzy daredevil was released back into nature after reaching the top of the building.

Update 2:45 p.m. EDT June 13: Officials with Wildlife Management Services, a pest control business based in Brooklyn Park, said they released the raccoon Wednesday afternoon on private property in the suburbs of the Twin Cities.

The company shared a short video of the raccoon’s release. It darted away from rescuers after only a small amount of prodding.

Update 9:45 a.m. EDT June 13: Officials said they plan to release the raccoon "somewhere safe" after it was lured into a trap baited with cat food on Wednesday morning at the top of St. Paul’s UBS Tower, the St. Paul Pioneer Press' Tad Vezner reported.

 

Reports surfaced earlier Wednesday that the climbing raccoon had been caught after spending hours scaling UBS Tower.

 

Update 8:45 a.m. EDT June 13: The raccoon was trapped by 8:15 a.m. Wednesday, according to Minnesota Public Radio's Tim Nelson. Earlier Wednesday, Nelson reported that animal control officers had placed cat food in a trap at the top of the 25-story UBS Tower in an attempt to catch the critter.

 

A representative of the Paige Donnelly Law Firm, situated on the top floor of the high-rise, wrote Wednesday morning on Twitter that building management said the raccoon was “safely in a cage.”

Original report: According to Minnesota Public Radio, the raccoon's harrowing journey began after it got stuck on a ledge of St. Paul's Town Square building. After maintenance workers tried to rescue the frightened critter, it ran to the roof, fled to the neighboring UBS Tower and started climbing.

The raccoon slowly made its way up the building Tuesday, taking occasional nap breaks on ledges. It eventually reached the 23rd floor, reported MPR's Tim Nelson, who documented the animal's trek with the now-trending hashtag #mprraccoon.

Late Tuesday, the raccoon began to descend the building, taking a breather at a 17th-floor ledge. But it shifted course again early Wednesday, climbing until it reached the roof about 3:30 a.m. EDT.

Although many concerned onlookers had called for help, city officials said saving the animal could be risky for rescuers and the raccoon, which could get scared and fall, according to the Pioneer Press. Instead, animal control workers placed a food trap on the roof, a city Department of Safety & Inspections spokeswoman told the newspaper.
