Who let the dogs out? Video holds answer
It was five years ago when strange things started happening at the Battersea Dogs & Cats Home.
Somehow, the same group of dogs were escaping from their pens at the shelter at night and proceeding to raid the food area, where they ate, played and partied all night long.
The shelter at first suspected staff wasn’t propertly closing the gates. Then they thought maybe it was a practical joke.
Finally, to find the answer, they installed three cameras. The first couple of nights, nothing happened, but then the cameras caught a greyhound mix named Red in the act — first freeing himself, then freeing his friends from their cages.
In Great Britain and Ireland, they call the mixed breed “lurchers,” and they’re known for their stealth and cunning.
Red certainly fit that bill — and better yet, shortly after shelter staff brought an end to the late night parties, Red got adopted.
