WATCH: This Minnesota Driver Jumps On Loose Dog On I-94, Keeping It Safe
Stray dogs, sadly, are a thing in Minnesota. Sometimes a dog can get out, break free from its line, or simply take itself out for a walk. Owning a Husky-mix I deal regularly with Houdini level madness, but one Minnesota dog decided to take to Interstate 94 yesterday, causing delays, as two Minnesota State Troopers attempted to corral the loose dog off the roadway and into one of their cruisers. Luckily there was a woman around, as she parked her SUV along the shoulder and patiently waited for the dog to run on by, and when it passed the front of her car, she jumped out at the dog, grabbed it, and was able to get it to safety.
Check out this video shared by WCCO's Nick Streiff shows the MnDOT camera footage of the literal slow-speed chase along I-94 as Minnesota State Troopers were trying to keep the dog from being hit by a vehicle, and corral the dog off the road and onto the right shoulder.
At last check, it seems like the Minnesota State Patrol is still looking for the dog's owner.
