Jeff Downer It’s all fun and games until the local wildlife shows up. Another lesson in how truth is stranger than fiction
It seems a Virginia bail agent located a bond jumper in a parking lot resulting in the fugitive ramming the agent’s car and running into a nearby woods. The agent followed whereupon the fugitive beat the tar out of him with a stick.
A police K-9 unit arrived next on the scene and was promptly …wait…not yet…wait…here it comes…bitten by a rabid groundhog! Bettcha didn’t see that one coming.
After having its handler shoot the demented rodent the undeterred K-9 unit relentlessly pursued its prey out onto Interstate 95 where the the fugitive was hit by a car. Miraculously the fugitive survived playing on the freeway and was eventually booked into the local jail.
I don’t know about you, but my thinking here is that the only winner here was the dog and that’s only if his shots were up to date. In any case I think there is a movie in this story. Perhaps a tear jerker family film about tragedy striking gentle woodland creatures. Call it something like Groundbi. Maybe a horror flick would be better. They could call that one: Groundhog Apocalypse: They Can See Your Shadow!.
