Fort Worth, Texas, police came to the rescue of a stray Rat Terrier who was scampering down the center lane of busy Interstate 30 last week. They set up a temporary roadblock, and dashboard cams show them trying to catch her. When they eventually get her, off camera, cheers and honking from onlookers can be heard on the video, which was posted on YouTube Wednesday. Officers Paul Garcia and Allen Speed say “she was evading us,” but they were able to lure the dog using treats from the back of Garcia’s cruiser and then grabbed her with a blanket. The officers named the dog Beach because she was captured near Beach Street exit and brought her to the Humane Society of North Texas. Beach was adopted on Thursday afternoon. — Watch it at Texas’ WFAA
