Drone Hero: New York Volunteer Uses Thermal Cam On $8K Drone to Rescue Dozens of Missing Pets for Free!

Today’s Good News is brought to you by The Shane Company “Fine Jewelry Since 1929”


1.  Did you see the video of a horse galloping down I-95 in Philadelphia last week?  The good news is he’s okay, and the escape earned him a new name.

He belongs to a charity called the Fletcher Street Urban Riding Club that offers inner-city kids a chance to go out and ride.  They got to choose a new name for him and went with “Freeway.”


2.  The Houston Zoo just did something big for something very small.  A Peruvian stick bug ended up with a floppy neck after she molted and shed her exoskeleton.  So they used part of a Q-tip and engineered a tiny neck brace that saved her life.  They took it off two days later, and she’s all better.  (Here’s a photo.)


3.  The new way to find a missing pet is to hire a drone operator to go look for them.  A reporter recently talked to a guy in New York who volunteers for a pet rescue group.  His $8,000 drone has a thermal cam that picks up body heat.  He’s found around 40 missing dogs in the past year.
