SALT LAKE CITY — A stray puppy gave first responders a slow-speed chase on the highway entrance of Parleys Canyon Sunday.

According to Salt Lake County Animal Services, the 6-month-old male Merle cattle dog was spotted on the 3300 S/Intersate-80/Interstate-215 interchange.

On the Utah Department of Transportation cameras, first responders attempted to catch the dog off the highway on a hill before the pup broke free.

The first responders were able to lead the dog to the top of the hill until it ran past them to the highway and started to run down I-80, forcing traffic to shut down.

Eventually, they safely caught the dog, and he is at the Salt Lake County Animal Services center at 511 W. 3900 S.

Salt Lake County Animal Services said the dog does not have a microchip or tags and will be placed on stray wait for five business days.

Animal services also remind people not to get out on the highway when they see a stray pet, as they could also be hit by a car, and to call 911.
