Tow Truck assists to round up pack of stray dogs run loose on highway (AZ)


Recommended Posts


PHOENIX — Talk about a ruff commute.


A group of dogs snarled rush hour traffic Monday morning in Phoenix.


A quick-acting officer and a tow truck driver guided the dogs to the side of busy Interstate 17.


"It was just the most bizarre mix of big, small, short, fat, skinny" dogs, witness Christin Calkin told KNXV-TV.


Arizona Department of Transportation video shows drivers slowing down to avoid the pack of pooches.

"My heart was racing," Calkin said.


Witnesses attempted to wrangle the dogs.


At one point, witnesses used a large German shepherd, who apparently was in heat, as bait to collect the dogs.


"We would collect them and put them in the truck except for that one cause they kind of all gravitated towards that one," Calkin said.


Four of the six dogs were taken by animal control officials. Two dogs escaped.
