Dog holds up traffic in Lodz

Lodz emergency services have saved a dog that got stuck under a tram, refused to be tempted out by sausage and held up traffic in the central Polish city for several hours.

The dog ran under a tram at the Pilsudski-Sarnia stop when the vehicle was stopped. Fortunately, the conductor noticed and did not start moving.

After locals were unable to coax the animal out with sausages, police and firemen arrived on scene with a special crane, lifted the tramcar and removed the dog from harm’s way.

No one from the area recognized or claimed the dog, so police took it to the local animal shelter.
