Hyannis – Police responded to Plymouth Ave this morning when a dog cornered a man and would not let him leave the room.
Officers met a woman who had just been forced to exit her home… they also met a trapped man leaning out a bedroom window.
Both were frightened by a small, but very angry, beagle foxhound mix who had suddenly taken over their home.
The recently rescued little tyrant belonged to the couple’s daughter, who was not at home at the time of the disturbance.
The daughter brought the shelter dog home just a week ago.
Reportedly everyone was getting along fine before the daughter left her parents alone with the new family pet…
The trouble started when the parents, wanting to be good hosts, offered the little fella a fresh soup-bone for his gnawing pleasure.
But the soup-bone triggered something unexpected… the beagle became possessive and would not let anyone near his new tasty treat…
… in fact he cleared out the entire home…
— that’s one hell-of-a soup-bone!
When Hyannis News arrived, both police officers were outside waiting for backup.
Officer Brian Morrison met with me not far from the home and warned, “he means business…” referring to the angry mutt on the other side of the nearby front door.
Backup soon arrived with the proper equipment…
It took two seasoned Barnstable Patrolmen and an Animal Control officer to get the soup-bone crazed beast back into his crate…
According to Morrison, the feisty mutt didn’t go peacefully and almost took a “chunk” out of his boot.
The dog was finally crated and officers were satisfied the tantrum was over for the time being.
The dog was not taken into custody and both parents were allowed back into their house.
The little beagle remained with its new owners and it’s unknown whether the family will be seeking help to deal with soup-bone aggression…
