UPDATE: Trains moving again after dog on BART tracks captured

A dog on the BART tracks near the Coliseum station in Oakland caused major delays Wednesday morning for all trains passing through the area.

BART officials wrote on Twitter at 8:09 a.m. about the incident, which was affecting service in the Dublin/Pleasanton, Warm Springs, Fremont, Richmond and Daly City directions.

Trains single-tracked through the area while crews worked to retrieve the dog, which eluded capture for nearly an hour.

At 8:56 a.m., BART wrote on Twitter, “We got the dog! Sorry for the horrible delays. Trains are moving again.”
