Chihuahua Runs Across Bay Bridge

A Chihuahua led police on a wild dog chase across the Oakland-San Francisco Bay Bridge on Sunday. Footage from a police car’s dash cam shows officers closing monitoring the canine’s progress as it scampered across the five-lane road bridge that had to be partially closed.

The pooch was detained and placed in animal custody before being transferred to a San Francisco animal shelter. The animal shelter staff members have since named him ‘Ponch’ in reference to CHiPs, a television show that highlighted the jobs that the California Highway Patrol has to undertake.
