The dog reportedly nudged around in the clamp for roughly two hours before passer-by Pierce Meybauls had the common sense to pick the booted dog up and take it to get de-clamped.
Meybauls said, “This isn’t the first thing I’ve had unbooted this week. Earlier they booted my cell phone, the railing on The What, Hector the caf worker, they even booted a boot that was just laying in their office.” He added, “Basically anything that looks out of place, gets a boot. The puppy just happened to be one of the cases in an actual parking lot.”
While the puppy didn’t sustain any physical injuries, it definitely looked very silly for a while.
The campus police officer who booted the dog refused to have an interview, but they did say, “Pup shud’na bin’dur ennyhew.”
