A hilarious image captured a naughty dog who was put behind the bars of a police car after he ran away and attacked a deer
Emme Thompson, 21, posted a picture of her dog Finn after he was captured by police when he ran away.
The mixed-breed rescued dog went on a walk with Thompson’s dad and girlfriend Saturday on a trail in their hometown of Kenora, Ontario, when he was let off his leash, Buzzfeed News reported.
Thompson said the dog can normally handle himself off the leash, but this time he caught the smell of a deer which sent him running.

Thompson said the police let Finn off with a warning, but told the family to keep the dog on a leash in the future. Her post on Twitter has since been shared more than 180,000 times
‘I guess he caught the scent of a deer because he took off into the bush, not responding to their calls or whistles,’ Thompson told Buzzfeed.
The Ontario Provincial Police Department called the Thompson family after they found Finn causing a ruckus while chasing a deer along a road.
The hilarious picture of Finn in the back of the police car was snapped after Thompson’s father went to bail the naughty dog out.
The 21-year-old posted the photo on Twitter and said: ‘Someone called the police on my dog because he ran away and attacked a deer and I know this is serious but the sight of him in the cop car.’
The viral picture has since been shared more than 180,000 as of Tuesday morning.
People immediately took to Twitter to implore the police to free the poor dog
One user joked that the family could probably hire a lawyer to handle Finn’s case ‘pro-bone-o’
Another user shared a hilarious picture of her own dog from the back of a police car. She was captured after she ran away
Many social media users took to Twitter to implore that the police ‘free’ the dog after his crime spree through Kenora.
One user said: ‘I’m sure you could get a lawyer to handle this pro-bone-o.’
Another user, Jessica Knopf, shared a picture of her dog in the back of a police car after she ran away.
‘My dog ran away and made it to a main road, a fire truck on a way to a call called 911 to have her picked up,’ Knopf said. ‘I was laughing so hard when they brought her back I started crying.’
Thompson updated her post hours later to inform people that Finn was released from police, but the family could potentially receive a fine for letting him off his leash.
A day later, police let the family know that they would not be fined for the incident but needed to keep Finn on a leash in the future.
