KILGORE, TX — An officer's pride was on the line when he was hijacked, unexpectedly, by a pit bull on Saturday.

Police said officers were dispatched to an animal control call on Saturday. The officer located a pit bull running around and thought he might be able to capture the dog quickly.

He opened his back door to try and get the dog in the backseat, but it didn't go as planned.

The officer had the driver's door open, and the dog decided he wasn't going to be caged today. He hopped in the front seat and then became aggressive.

The door was shut to protect the officer from the dog, and the then he was hijacked.

The dog was now enjoying the A/C and the officer's beef jerky.

After hearing on the scanner about the hijacking, the chief texted the officer asking questions. The officer texted the picture of the dog and said, he didn't look happy.

The officer then responded, "He ain't, and neither am I."

An animal control officer came to the rescue and safely took the dog into custody.

The post said the only injury that occurred, was the officer's pride.
