Very big hero catches very small dog
A 6-foot, 10-inch tall police officer chased a tiny dog down a Phoenix area highway — first on his motorcycle, then on foot — and managed to snag the frightened pooch and return it to safety.
Department of Public Safety Officer Martin Bennett captured one of the two dogs that had escaped from a car that overturned on the highway.
After attempting to herd it off the road on his motorcycle, Bennett hopped off, gave chase, and cornered the dog against a concrete median strip. Though it snapped at him, he picked it up, cradled it in its arms and returned it to its owner, who wasnt’ seriously injured in the accident.
A helicopter captured the chase from above.
The second dog was reported to have been recovered safely, as well.
