Another look at #CHP's dogged #pursuit of a German Shepherd today on the 170 Freeway. CHP officers did a good job stopping traffic while helping some good samaritans try to catch him. He was too fast though and got away but thankfully off the freeway. @CBSLA @CHP_HQ #BadBoiBadBoi pic.twitter.com/rLgoXSQx0oREAD MORE: 3 Children Stabbed To Death In Reseda Apartment; Mother Captured In Central California After Going On The Run

California Highway Patrol officers first started the pursuit of the German Shepherd, before falling back to help control traffic as a group of good Samaritans attempted to corral the dog.
Unfortunately, the very smart pup was able to evade officers as it ran up the side of the freeway and temporarily out of danger, before running back down onto the freeway again.
That’s when firefighters from Los Angeles Fire Department Station 89 stepped up and helped CHP get the pup safely off the road.MORE NEWS: 6-Year-Old Boy Wounded After Gunfire Erupts At Sun Valley Apartment Complex; Female Suspect Sought
“He got back on the freeway,” CHP West Valley said. “Took a while, but we (LAFD 89’s and our units) got him.”
