Luna, a two-year-old border collie mix, is alive and well after finding herself on train tracks near Liberty Village as a GO train came barrelling toward her.
On Dec. 8, Luna ran away from her dog walker and for nine hours, managed to survive a list of perilous events that eventually lead her back home to her owner’s door step.
During her run, the beloved pooch was spotted dodging traffic on the Gardiner Expressway and Lakeshore Boulevard.
She ended up on the tracks near Exhibition GO station, in the direct view of a train conductor who applied full brake to avoid the dog. But with the train travelling over 80 kilometres an hour, the vehicle couldn’t slow down in time.
