When an 18-year-old man was home alone at his house in Sonoma, California, he called 911 when his dogs began barking hysterically. Essentially warning him that something was wrong. He was afraid there was an intruder in the house when he heard strange noises. He took his pets with him to a safe hiding spot.
Law enforcement arrived, snd they found the terrified man hiding with his pets. After searching the inside and outside of the house, they found the so-called “intruder.”
“One of the deputies outside the house heard this scratching noise,” said Spencer Crum of the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Department. “He shined his light around the house and saw this dog sticking his head out a skylight on the roof. The deputy said — and I quote — ‘At that point we ditched all tactics and died laughing.’”
The “intruder” was none other than the panicked man’s Great Dane, whom the man had forgotten to bring to his hiding spot.
When the curious dog found his way upstairs, he stood on his hind legs and poked his head out of the skylight on the roof. Crum explained that the smaller dogs were barking because they weren’t able to climb upstairs with their larger companion.
Fortunately for all, there was no real intruder, and the police officers got a good laugh out of the bizarre situation.
“I’ve done this job for 25 years, and there’s been a lot of strange calls,” said Crum. “A dog mistaken for an intruder in his own home? That’s pretty abnormal.”
