Rescue Called Off; Dog Apparently Lost at Sea

April 09, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

A $50,000 rescue operation to save a dog left alone aboard an abandoned Indonesian oil tanker off Hawaii ended with organizers saying the ship apparently sank.

"We are deeply saddened to report that Forgae, the 2-year-old dog left on board a crippled tanker . . . has apparently been lost at sea," Pamela Burns, head of the Hawaiian Humane Society, and Martha Armstrong of the Humane Society of the United States, said in a statement.

The effort was called off Sunday after more than 1,000 square miles of ocean was searched, the society said.
