Pet husky plunges four storeys from Hong Kong flat and lives
A husky was lucky to be alive after plunging four storeys from a flat in Cheung Sha Wan. Police were called to the Cheong Lee Building on Castle Peak Road just after 8am yesterday after a resident heard a thump and saw the dog lying in a fifth-floor yard. The snowy grey adult female fell from a flat on the ninth floor and regained consciousness in the presence of Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) staff who quizzed the owner.
“The husky was unconscious when our inspector reached her,” a spokeswoman of the SPCA said.
“She regained consciousness when she was stretchered into our van. She could not move the bottom half of her body as it seemed to be injured.”
The husky needed to be kept at an animal hospital after receiving emergency treatment. No surface wounds were found on the hound.
It is understood that the husky was microchipped, and the SPCA reached the pet’s owner to query how such an accident could occur.
“The pet owner arrived at the SPCA in the morning. But we cannot further reveal the condition of the hound out of privacy concerns,” the spokeswoman said.
A police spokesman said officers believed the dog fell out of a window by accident, reports South China Morning Post
