Texas Cop Shuts Down Highway To Save Dog

A police officer in La Porte, Texas, helped save a dog that was in trouble on a busy freeway.

Cujo, jittery rat terrier, drifted all the way up to Spencer Highway, a short drive in a car, but a long walk for a little dog with a hip that forces him to toddle around with a slight waddle. Somehow he crossed the busy road and started walking in a moving lane of traffic.

Officer Kyle Jones, who happened to be driving by, made a quick decision: He spun his car around and blocked traffic on the busy highway to save the life of a lost dog.

Thank You Officer Jones! Another asset to the Great State of Texas. And a good example of the calibre of Law Enforcement in general. Blues, Stay Safe.

Saved more than just this dogs life many times folks swerve to miss animals both alive and hit on the roadway. I remember in the 60's allot of young teens used to play pull the skunk around Halloween prank and a very dangerous one - which was a black sock filled with leaves with a while piece of adhesive tape on it...Pulled across roadways usually from some young teens hidden in hedges. I remember the patrolman coming to our school and talking about how serious this is people get hurt and possibly killed...taking evasive action...I never heard anymore about pull a skunk after that from any one in my school after the talk...So sometimes just communication these items makes a major difference and safety for all! Thank you Officer Jones - now if I could only remember that big Irish cop who talked at our school but this was in 1965-66...:-)
