Two Dogs Accidentally Called 911 Sixteen Times In Thirty Minutes

When police officers in Lakeville, Minnesota, received 16 911 calls in the span of 30 minutes, the authorities immediately assumed it had to be an emergency.

Their suspicions were further raised since the answered calls didn’t contain anything other than barking noises in the background – and they were all placed from the same number. The police immediately set off in response to the calls.

Turns out, the owners’ dogs had been left alone at home while they were at work. The dog’s owner had left a phone upstairs in his home office.

It happened to be that the phone’s screen was set to “emergency calls only,” so the dogs kept accidentally calling 911 as they played with the phone.
