Lisa Murawski-Dupont felt helpless Monday as she searched frantically down the commuter rail tracks between the Savin Hill and JFK/UMass stations.
The MBTA Transit Police officer was looking for two dogs that concerned patrons had told her were trapped inside a fenced-in area, walking on the tracks. Assigned to a police bicycle, Murawski-Dupont rode toward JFK/UMass searching for the canines between the tall fence and barbed wire.
As she neared the station, a break in the fence allowed her access to the tracks. It was 10 a.m., and she was able to catch a glimpse of one of the dogs.
“I saw a large pit bull shaking and wet,” Murawski-Dupont said during a telephone interview.
