A moment of kindness in Kansas City captured the world’s attention on Tuesday. Social media users were all atwitter about a photo showing a Kansas City police officer sitting with two dogs in a grassy knoll off a ramp that leads to 75th Street.
The officer, who did not want to be identified, is being hailed a hero for saving the dogs separated — and since reunited — from their owners, Fox4KC reports.
Debbie Davis took one of the photos that has since gone viral on social media.
“As I pull up, it’s a motorcycle cop sitting in the cold grass with two stray — or what appears to be stray dogs, just sitting there petting them,” she said.
The dogs escaped the safety of their home in south Kansas City. The police officer waited with them until help could arrive.
