While inspecting the U.S. Route 84 westbound bridge over the Mississippi River on Sunday, Stantec bridge inspector Craig Jenkins noticed a stranded hound dog on the adjacent bridge structure.

The dog was just downstream, beneath the bridge deck.

Stantec lead climber and rescue technician Ryan Nataluk called police and climbed to the distressed dog.

An officer with the Natchez Police Department took the dog for evaluation.
