About 6:30 pm Sunay, Placerville CHP was sent to a call of a dog on the freeway, westbound US-50 at Greenstone.

A witness reported that a vehicle had slowed down, kicked the dog out of the vehicle and then sped off.

Fortunately, Officer Merkel got there quickly and rescued this good boy before he was harmed. As you can see, they became fast friends.

Not sure what would bring someone to abandoning an innocent dog on a freeway. We will reserve further comment on that.

Everyone is asking what is causing these Mass Shootings. Where there warning signs? If there were, then why didn’t anyone notice? I’m here to tell you there were MANY warning signs that these young people were displaying, before these horrific incidents occurred. No one paid attention or knew how to see them.

After a tragic loss a few years ago, this young girl told her mom she was afraid of law enforcement. Her mom reached out to members of EDSO and we took it as an opportunity to bond with her. She was a lucky recipient of a hand crafted bear, which is made from old uniforms donated by deputies and correctional officers. By the end of this meeting, EDSO had a new friend and "Deputy the Bear" had a new home.
