No – there’s no punchline. This really happened.
Don the Collie managed to jump into the car of a tractor near Glasgow, and drove it onto a nearby highway. Traffic had to be stopped and there were incredibly long tailbacks.
The Collie eventually drove the tractor into the center divider, where traffic police managed to get him out of the main car of the tractor safely.
Scotland’s road monitors – Traffic Scotland – live tweeted some of the event, and also snapped some shots of the road-hungry dog looking pretty sorry for himself, too.
His owner, a farmer, tells his story below. Fortunately, no one was harmed in this incident. Maybe just dog Don’s pride.
