When You See Your Dog In The Back Of A Police Car…

Meet Finn, the six-year-old rescue pooch who chased a deer and landed himself in the back of a police car looking ever so impressed.

Finn’s owner, Emme Thompson, insists he’s really ‘a good boy’ — with a deer issue, adding that he’s ‘very cuddly and sweet’.

Emme’s dad, Reid Thompson, was walking Finn on Saturday when he let him off his lead.

The next time they saw him he was being temporarily detained by the OPP. We’re not kidding.

Emme said: “My dad and his girlfriend were walking Finn at a local trail system and decided to let him go off leash. He’s normally able to do this without a problem and stays close by. I guess he caught the scent of a deer because he took off into the bush, not responding to their calls and whistles.”
“They had made their way back to the trail head when he received a call from the Ontario Provincial Police saying that they had Finn and he had caused some chaos chasing a deer along a nearby road. He’s an extremely fast runner and inevitably caught up to the deer, he’s much smaller than a deer so it got away and he gave up the chase.

Emme, a psychology student at Dalhousie University in Halifax, tweeted about the incident. Her tweet proved pretty popular;  at the time of writing, the tweet has racked up more than 628,000 likes and has been retweeted over 182,000 times.
