RCMP dog helps rescue baby taken by man into dense Manitoba woods

Manitoba RCMP in the Winnipegosis area were able to safely rescue and infant and arrest a suspect thanks to the work of a very good dog.

Police said they were called on the afternoon of April 18 about a man who had threatened to shoot residents in a house before fleeing with a baby.

Officers spotted the man driving off, then leaving his vehicle and running into the bush with the infant, who wasn’t dressed for the below-zero weather.
