Some elementary students in Claiborne County are getting a lesson in compassion.
The kids at TNT Primary School in New Tazewell found a dog on their playground that was obviously injured.
The dog turned out to have a broken leg, and they couldn't find an owner. So the kids took matters into their owns hands. With the help of their teachers, they got the dog to a vet and are working to raise money for its care.
So far, they've raised about half of the $400 dollars needed to cover vet bills.
