CHP chases Chihuahua on Bay Bridge, video

Chihuahua Chase

The San Francisco Department of Animal Care and Control is waiting for a dog owner to pick up a runaway Chihuahua that was seen darting across the Bay Bridge Sunday morning. California Highway Patrol officers chased the dog in a “high-speed pursuit” on the bridge.

Dash cam video shows the small dog evading officers as they tried to capture it. Eventually, the officers tracked down the Chihuahua and turned it over to animal services.

Officials are asking the Chihuahua’s owner to call animal services at (415) 554-6364.

Mmmm, Comida..

Yo quiero San Francisco

My son had an accident a few years ago on South Street in SLO when an unleashed pitbull ran across the street from the park. He hit the dog because it just ran right in front of the car, not because of intent. It did several hundred dollars’ worth of damage to his car and he was without a car for about a week. The dog’s owner were never cited and never took any responsibility for the accident. Police did nothing.

The Chihuahua’s owner will probably never come forward if there are bills to pay for closing the bridge, etc. It might also be a stray…

Would they have rounded it up if it were an Irish Setter Or an English Bulldog

2 questions come to mind…

1. How did the dog get on the bay bridge?

2. Did they shut down the bridge to corral the dog? I have never seen the bay bridge without vehicles.

Any true Christian should put the animal that is in danger first and for most because they’re to be protected.

“Whoever is righteous has regard for the life of his beast, but the mercy of the wicked is cruel.” (Proverbs 12:10)

Within the examples given of causing crashes by trying to save the animal, the Christian can gain solace in not only saving an animal in distress if they cause a crash by doing so, but if killed, we get to see Jesus sooner than later. We win both ways, praise!

Usually ignore but it’s been awhile. How’s your mom’s basement working out?


I am truly sorry that the Hebrew Christian god’s word and precepts make you upset.

Jesus warned me of people like you; “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.” (Matthew 5:11)

Good day.

If people are wondering why the CHP would go through all the trouble to trap the dog, there is a good reason. Stupid drivers will slam on their brakes and cause a multiple vehicle crash because they love little dogs and don’t want to hurt them. They would rather send people to the hospital. A lady caused a four vehicle accident, including a head on collision, on Tank Farm Road in SLO because she didn’t want to run over a squirrel. She sent a couple people to the hospital and destroyed more than $100,000 worth of vehicles because she didn’t want to hurt a squirrel.

That’s why I said terminate it. Chihuahuas are related to squirrels, I think.

Amen!! When I was a kid accident happened twice in 18 months in almost same spot with same result. Person swerved to miss dog, went into on coming traffic and killed someone. I understand thinking swerve and save animal but then you kill someone? Life is tough choices and if you hit and kill the animal that doesn’t make you a bad person.

Just terminate it and open the bridge.
