(Newser) – Two animal rescues are making some headlines:

  • Dog on freeway: A Good Samaritan driving on a Houston freeway pulled over and rescued an injured dog that had somehow found its way into the center of the HOV lane, reports the Huffington Post. Rickey Young finally coaxed the skittish yellow lab to safety with a sandwich from his truck. (KHOU has video.) Vets treated the dog for internal bleeding and broken bones.
  • Bear on ski slope: An injured bear cub that was approaching skiers on a mountaintop in Lake Tahoe was tranquilized and brought safely to a vet's office for treatment, reports AP. The year-old bear likely fell out of a tree at the Heavenly Mountain Resort and is recovering from a puncture wound in its shoulder.
