The Duck of Justice for 5/18/17: Runaway dog gets blue-light escort home

From The Bangor Police Department:

Soon after the dog slipped his collar, he was struck by a car. The owner was understandably terrified when the dog regained his composure and left the area quickly. She had no idea what the extent of his injuries might be, so she called us.

Cops show up when there is no one else to call. Remember that.

Officer Mike Pina began to check the area for the missing dog and located him when the runaway pooch made a break for it from under the cover of darkness.

In this Bangor Police Department Dash-Cam exclusive-We find Officer Mike Pina following the “injured” dog back to his home.

The video will be masterfully played back in double-time in order to keep your boss off your case for watching Facebook videos for more than one minute and six-seconds, as well as to add a comedic zaniness and jocundity to an otherwise mundane Tuesday in our little world.

Yes, Pina ran the blue lights because he found the dog would not obey his commands of “stop, or you will be arrested” and “I will hug you and squeeze you and call you George.”

He felt that the lights would warn other vehicle operators in the area to use caution in order to keep the pooch from being struck again.

Mike was able to come to the conclusion that the dog was unimpeded by the recent run in with the motor vehicle. I am no veterinarian, but I concur. The little rascal hit 13 miles per hour on his home stretch. That boy has some stamina.

We did not write the dog for running any of the stop signs. Pina might have tried, but found the dog has no thumbs to even sign a uniform traffic ticket.

Tell ol’ TC that this doesn’t fit perfectly.

Keep your hands to yourself, leave other people’s things alone, and be kind to one another.

Spay and neuter your pets.

Bob Barker was right.

We will be here.
