NEW INFO (7/11)
A dog tossed from a moving vehicle on a busy Marathon County highway is now up for adoption.
The Marathon County Humane Society's website says the dog, named Loki is loving but doesn't get along with other dogs.
The Humane Society held him for a short time to make sure his owner didn't come in for him. In case he ran away or was taken from his home.
Loki could be ready to be adopted as early as next Thursday, according to the Marathon County Humane Society. He was neutered on Thursday and then has to go through temperament testing to make sure he's fit to be with a family.
"He was scared, he was a little bit growly when he first came in. But if you got thrown out of a truck you'd probably be a little growly too,” explained Marathon County Humane Society Director Mary Kirlin about their newest resident.
A dog the humane society has named, Loki, is being cared for there, after someone driving on I-39 in Kronenwetter opened the door of a vehicle and pushed him out onto the busy highway.
According to the Kronenwetter Police Department , a good Samaritan saw a black GMC Sierra truck open it's door and push Loki out. The dog chased after the truck for about a quarter mile until the good Samaritan caught up to it and took it to the Marathon County Humane Society.
He not is not up for adoption just yet, as the humane society wants to make sure the owner has a chance to claim their dog, in case he ran away or was taken from his home.
If you have any information regarding the dog, call the humane society at (715) 845-2810.
