A TriMet bus driver thought something was off about the man who boarded with a dog. Turns out, the dog wasn't his.
When asked, the man could not give the dog’s name.
“Things didn’t fit together, so I let him know that I just wasn’t buying it,” Thomas said. “When I got downtown, the gentleman was going to exit,” — with the dog — “and I grabbed Cooper’s collar and informed him that Cooper would be staying with me, and that I would be getting him back to his family.”
Thomas called transit police, who asked if he wouldn’t mind keeping Cooper until they could catch up with him at the Washington Square Transit Center.
