Dog Next to Deceased Owner
Nebraska State Trooper Mike Ritonya took this photograph at the scene of an automobile accident. The dog is sitting beside his 17-year-old owner, who is covered by a tarp. Both the dog and his owner were ejected from the vehicle seen overturned in the background. The beer carton in the foreground shows a likely contributing factor to the crash. Trooper Ritonya said that the dog would not leave his owner’s side.
