Austrian authorities are fining a man for calling police officers "smurfs" in a Facebook post.

Spanish police have posted a video to Facebook of a dog that has been trained to perform CPR.

The video shows Poncho the police dog promptly responding to its partner who pretended to be unresponsive. Poncho repeatedly used its front paws to pound on his partner’s chest, mimicking cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Poncho then paused to put its ear on his partner’s neck to try to detect a pulse. The dog repeated the actions until the officer stood up.

Police wrote Poncho “did not hesitate for an instant” to save a life.
