Connector Chaos!

The dog that caused all that chaos on the Connector this week has been found! SIX cars got into accidents to avoid the golden lab running across the road. He was tracked down after the accident, and our reporter Kim Fields found him at the Idaho Humane Society. They've nick-named him CRASH for obvious reasons!


Crash looks like he's someone's pet for sure! He doesn't have a scratch on him after the incident. Our good friend Dee Fugit from the Idaho Humane Society has her own theory as to why he was running loose on the Connector:

"Well, you know he's not neutered. So, you know he was out looking for love in all the wrong places, and the Connector is not the place to be looking for it," - Dee Fugit, Idaho Humane Society 

Here's the kicker - Fugit says if Crash's owners come forward, they will be liable for the damage caused by the dog. (Uh oh! We're talking SIX car wrecks!) She hopes that won't deter them from claiming him. Crash will be put up for adoption if no one claims him within seven days.

You can watch Kim Fields' story on CRASH on our homepage right now at Then tell us...



Should "Crash's" owner should pay up for the damage?
