WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAU) -- Walking the dogs led to the death of the dogs in downtown Wausau Thursday.

The owner of two golden retrievers was walking them near Fern Island Park in Wausau, along the Wisconsin River. Shortly after noon, the dogs jumped from shore onto what appeared to be snow covered ice, but both dogs broke through the ice. They were immediately swept under the ice by the swift current and drowned.

It’s a sad reminder to keep people and pets off the ice, since it is very dangerous.
