A Warren County woman is again reminding lake-front property owners to practice safety in the use of ice-eaters and/or bubblers. Cindy Mead, of Horicon, took on the issue – one that has been debated in the ice fishing community for years – in the winter of 2021-22 after her daughter’s dog drowned in Brant Lake, in northern Warren County. The dog had wandered off and gotten in the open water created by a de-icer and was unable to get back on shore. The dog was later found deceased in the water.
