Two North Richland Hills cops helped catch a dog on the loose on Sunday using impressive motorcycle skills.
Agents Province and Cortes were traveling near Boulevard 26 at Baker Blvd. Sunday afternoon when they noticed several cars across the street swerving and braking, according to the police department. They saw the North Richland Hills animal control truck crossing the hill and a dog running on the roadway on Boulevard 26.
“The Provincial and Cortes agents knew they had to help,” the police department said in a press release. “Together, they worked to get the dog out of the busy road and pushed him to a nearby open field. He kept chasing and seemed to have endless amounts of energy.
Using their motorcycles, they returned the dog to the animal control officer, but at the last second the dog took a sharp turn and ran away. Officer Province asked the animal control officer for the capture pole and the two officers again chased the dog.
The Province officer climbed up beside the dog and, as he rode the motorcycles, dove with the pole to hang it.
“The gentle dog was turned over to (animal control), who took him to the shelter and helped him calm down,” police said. “Excellent work from the Provincial and Cortes Officers! You’ve definitely shown some of these amazing skills on your bikes! “
“Teamwork is when you see something needs to be done, and without being asked, you step up, step in and do it,” said Menefee, Animal Control Officer at NRH. , in the press release. “Officers’ Province and Cortes did just that today… Again, I cannot thank you and your officers enough. “
