The California Highway Patrol pursued an unusual subject on the Bay Bridge Sunday morning — a dog.

The dog, which appears to be a black Chihuahua mix, was reported running in the eastbound lanes of traffic just before 7 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.

Officers pursued the animal for about a half hour until they managed to catch it around 7:20 a.m.

The dog has a collar with a phone number on its tag, but officers are asking the public’s help in locating the “rascal’s” family, the agency posted to its Facebook page.
