Dog “Hijacks” Owner’s Truck, Drives It into a Lake

“-What did you do? What did you do? - I Drove your truck into a lake, sorry!” How does that sound for a mad world dialogue between man and animal? It rather sounds like a spooky story that could scare off even the bravest kid at camp. It actually happened, though.

No matter how odd this story sounds like, it actually seems to be a regular revenge situation. According to Ellsworth Police quoted by Associated Press, a man was walking his dog near Branch Lake on Saturday afternoon in Ellsworth when he decided to put the furry animal inside his truck. Apparently, he wouldn't stop the hassle he had with another dog, so the owner decided to take them apart.

While the man spoke to the other canine’s owner, the Yorkshire terrier somehow managed to make himself noticed. He managed to bump the Chevrolet Silverado into gear, causing the truck to roll about 75 feet (25 meters) into the lake, and bounce off a rock before sinking in roughly 10 feet (3 meters) of water.

Luckily, a family friend jumped into the lake and managed to take the trapped dog outside and bring him to safety, thus making sure nobody got hurt. The truck did, however, sink and needed a towing company to remove it (and some hundreds of dollars for repairing for that matter).

Now, we care for all animals, but if we were to have a pet at the office, us, the editors at autoevolution, would probably opt between a cat or a dog. Sure, this is just common fact, just like the fact that Yorkshire Terriers are small in size but big in personality. Believe it or not, there’s a website that describes each breed accordingly, and this one appears to be characterized as the most popular toy dog breed in the U.S.

“The ‘Yorkie’ has won many fans with his devotion to his owners, his elegant looks, and his suitability to apartment living,” Dog Time claims.
