Sheriff's deputies in Oklahoma recently rescued an injured dog that had been stuck on train tracks for nearly half a week.

The Wagoner County Sheriff's Office shared video of the incident on Wednesday. The department explained that its deputies became aware of the injured dog on March 27, after receiving a call about the animal.

“Deputy Hutton observed that a large dog was struck by a train and became trapped between railroad tracks,” the office said in a Facebook post.

“Deputy Hutton and Captain Harding determined that they were unable to get a patrol unit to the location of the injured animal, so they requested the Side by Side Sheriff's Office to the location to transport the animal safely to the road.”

Bodycam footage shows one officer carefully picking up the dog while another helped and said words of encouragement.

“You’re okay, you’re okay,” a police officer was heard cooing to the injured animal.

In less than a minute, authorities successfully transported the dog to their vehicle. The animal was soon reunited with its family and taken to the local veterinarian's office for treatment.
