Story of Dog Rescuing Drowning Girl Was Hoax

Yesterday on Facebook, I shared a link to a story about a dog rescuing a drowning girl - Family Dog Rescues 6-Year-Old Girl from River Drowning: "The dog sprinted and jumped about 12 feet out into the river just in front of the child. They both went under and when they came up the dog had her jacket in its mouth and was dragging her to the bank. The dad ran into the water's edge and grabbed the other side of the child's jacket and they both dragged her up onto the grass." I made a comment to a friend that it reminded me of the Farley storyline.

Well apparently it was a little closer to fiction than I realized - Morton Report Readers 'Trolled' by Internet's Mischief Maker David Thorne: "On Thursday the 18th, an article concerning a dog named Maggie rescuing a 6-year-old child was posted on The Morton Report under the guise of being a real story." I wonder if Thorne is a Foob fan.
