A Bay Bridge dog chase Sunday morning saw cops tailing a black Chihuahua on the run in the middle of the five-lane freeway, and now video of the incident has made the pup an Internet sensation.

The "high-speed chase" — well, for the Chihuahua anyway — occurred just before 7 a.m., according to the San Jose Mercury News. A California Highway Patrol officer followed the pup on a motorcycle in a pursuit captured on dashcam video that was later posted to YouTube.



"The officers eventually caught the dog and brought it to San Francisco Animal Care and Control," Mercury News reported. "The dog was resting comfortably late Sunday morning, shelter staff said."

California Highway Patrol in San Francisco posted a picture of the pooch on its Facebook page with the "arresting" officer in hopes to find the owner.

"It took a while, I mean he was fast, he was running," California Highway Patrol officer Vu Williams told KGO-TV. "We set up several road blocks, but he just ran right around them. Eventually, we were able to box him in. I used my jacket to distract him and the motor officer came up and took him into custody."

Social media marveled at the runaway Chihuahua spectacle on the Bay Bridge.
