All too often we see news reports of cops reaching for their guns when threatened by dangerous looking dogs who are often just scared and anxious.
After responding to a call about two vicious dogs on the loose in a residential neighborhood, Meridian police officer David Gomez found the two animals wandering freely on the street, and as soon as he got out of the car, they charged at him as they barked and snarled.
Gomez took out his baton and pepper spray to prepare for an attack, as they approach, but he stays incredibly calm, even as one dog starts foaming at the mouth.
Gomez calls for animal control, but when he hears they won’t be at the scene for another 15 minutes, he knows he has to find a solution before he, the animals, or a bystander gets hurt.
Gomez opens the back door of his cop car and asks the two dogs if they wanted to go for a ride. Rather than resort to violence or force, Gomez keeps his tone calm and happy as he calls for the dogs, and incredibly, they climb straight into his backseat.
Watch the incredible footage below to see how this cop calmed two angry dogs.
