The city of Port St Lucie in Florida, United States, witnessed some drama when a dog hopped into its owner’s car and turned itself into a driver.
According to a report by CNN, one of the residents of the neighbourhood, Anne Sabol, who witnessed the dramatic incident, said she thought it was an amateur student driving the car in circles, only to later find out that it was a dog that was behind the wheel.
Sabol said: "At first I thought I saw somebody backing up, but then they kept going, and I'm like, 'OK, what're they doing?' "
The dog put the car in reverse and drove in circles for almost one hour before it stopped and safely got out of the car.
Sabol was impressed with the dog’s driving and jokingly said it should be given a driver' licence.
“They should give that thing a licence,” she said.
While it did not do much damage to the car, it smashed a neighbour's mailbox and hit some garbage cans in the process.
The dog’s owner, explaining to the police how the incident happened, said he had left the car running when the dog entered, put the car in reverse drive and drove for nearly one hour.
No member of the community suffered injury as a result of the incident and the dog owner has promised to fix the smashed mailbox.
