A Missouri couple distressed by the sudden collapse of their beloved Great Dane called 911 for help. That call has them in hot water with police, who slapped them with a fine the following day.

According to Fox2Now, “Police said a 911 recording showed Rose Lakey clearly said her “daughter” needed help. She didn`t deny it; it could have happened given her hysterical state. Still, she said she knows she said “dog” at the beginning of the call. The Lakeys hoped for a little more understanding from police.”

Rose and Randy Lakey are due in O’Fallon, Missouri Municipal Court next month.

  1. When you have police officers, firemen, and EMT personnel going out of their way to help animals, it sure makes for bad publicity when a police dept pulls this kind of stunt…that ticket needs to be cancelled immediately and an apology ensue. These people pay taxes too. I’m betting the judge lets them off.

  2. I called 911 aboout a dog that was left outside without food or water..The Officer that arrived was wonderful..He went out of his way to help the poor doggie.
