Dog rescuers Christopher Kracht, 40, and Ann Watson, 38, were on their way to Canada with 48 dogs ready to be placed for adoption. The rescuers were on an interstate in Idaho when tragedy struck, resulting in a crash with multiple fatalities.
Their vehicle “left the interstate on the left shoulder, went into the median and struck an embankment,” per the Idaho State Police.
The Blackfoot Animal Shelter and Rescue are assisting police in their recovery efforts. On their Facebook page, they wrote, “We have had a very traumatic day; however, the animals that were found alive are safe. We have traps set that we will be monitoring through the night. Again there are only two loose. We do not want people to be on the freeway and endangering their lives. Please stay safe.”
