How a stray dog got the best of a Texas police officer (and ate his beef jerky, too)  4 Weeks ago

Source:   USA Today  

A stray Texas pit bull snagged some beef jerky out of an unlikely place Saturday: the front seat of a police officer's car. 

The dog jumped into the seat after the officer tried to coax him into the back of the vehicle, which was caged. But the dog "decided he wasn't going to jail," Kilgore Police Chief Todd Hunter wrote on Facebook. 

When the officer tried to get the pit bull out, Hunter said the dog became so aggressive that the officer had to shut the door for his safety.

Then the chief heard the pit bull enjoying the air conditioning and beef jerky over the radio. The response to the animal control call wasn't going as planned.

From outside the car, the officer texted Hunter a visual update on the "hijacking."

The chief commented the pit bull didn't look happy. 

"He ain't, and neither am I," the officer texted. 

Because the eastern Texas city doesn't have a 24/7 animal control, the officer tried to catch the dog running around the neighborhood on his own. He ended up calling an animal control officer, who safely removed the dog. 

"The only injury sustained in this incident was to the officer's pride," Hunter wrote. 

The pit bull is now in the care of nearby Longview Animal Care and Adoption Center. The staff called him "super sweet" on Facebook and posted pictures of the dog in a taco costume, thanking the officer for rescuing him.   

"I knew he wasn't a vicious dog," one user commented. "Didn't have the look in his eyes. He just wanted more beef jerky."
