Canada Dog 'Arrested' For Chasing Deer, Ends Up Behind Bars www.insideedition.com

A Canadian dog that just plain hates deer got busted in Canada and was brought home in a police cruiser.

"He is such a sweet dog and loves humans and other animals," his owner, Emme Thompson, told InsideEdition.com Monday. "For some reason, deer just bother him!"

Thompson, a 21-year-old college student, posted a photo of her dog, looking forlorn in the back seat of a police car, on Twitter, where it promptly went viral. The adorable photo has been viewed more than 165,000 times.

"The attention has been insane," said Thompson, who is from Ontario. "I never expected it to blow up like this."

Her dad and his girlfriend had been out walking with the dog, Finn, when they let him off his leash, Thompson said. "Normally, he does this no problem and stays close by," she said. Not so on Sunday, when he spied a dreaded deer and took off running.

Finn did not answer calls or whistles after he bounded away in the bushes. The couple looked and looked but couldn't find him. They reluctantly made their way back to the trail head.

Not long after, the Ontario Police called. Finn, it appeared, had gotten himself into a bit of trouble and was now in custody. 

When she saw her yellow-and-white pup in the cruiser's back seat, Thompson said she thought it looked so funny she had to take a photo. 

"The police were very nice to him and brought him back safely," Thompson said.

Her image also inspired others to post their own photos of dogs in deep doo-doo.
