When a terrified woman recently called the police in Huabei, Anhui province, asking for assistance against the “vicious dog” that wouldn’t let her out of her apartment, local authorities decided it was best to get prepared for what would presumably be a dangerous situation out in the field. Soon, the officers arrived, armed and ready to take on the beast that terrorized the residential neighborhood.
Here is the footage of that terrifying confrontation:
As it turns out, the caller had sadly misled the authorities about the severity of the situation. Instead of a deranged beast, police only found a pretty friendly pupper that was extracted from the building without considerable use of force.
We hope that both the dog and the frightened resident have calmed down and are doing well.
