Gwinnett jail dog on the run for 2 months

Gwinnett jail dog on the run for 2 months

GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. -- A little jail dog named Rogue is living up to her name -- she's been on the run for two months.

Rogue is part of Operation Second Chance, a program that partners dogs and cats with inmates in the Gwinnett County Jail. The inmates train the animals and prepare them to be adopted by local families.

The Gwinnett County Sheriff's Department said on its Facebook page that Rogue ran away in early February, when a volunteer took her to Rhodes Jordan Park for a walk.

There's a big reason why Gwinnett County Animal Welfare and Enforcement officers haven't been able to catch Rogue.

"They have tracked her movements and more than once have set out humane traps that resulted in Rogue's capture, but well-meaning citizens have set her free each time," the sheriff's department said on Facebook.

Sign pointing to Ga. Gwinnett College has misspelling

Sign pointing to Ga. Gwinnett College has misspelling

LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga.-- The new Collins Hill Bridge on Highway 316 came in with a $52.7 million price tag. Apparently, that cost didn't cover an extra "N".

A sign at the new exit points to one of the state's fastest growing places of higher education, Georgia Gwinnett College. However, the sign spells the county as "Gwinett," without that second "N".

Sharp-eyed motorists spotted the misspelling before college and transportation officials noticed the mistake.

Natalie Dale, a GDOT spokeswoman, told 11Alive's Commuter Dude the misspelling was a "human error." The signs are done manually, and several other signs in the area pointing to the college are spelled correctly.
