The bone-shuddering noise of a Road Traffic Collision (RTC) often entices onlookers to run over to the incident in order to see what has happened and, of course, to pull out their mobile phones and start filming the scene.
But we have never seen the same dogs repeatedly running over to the scene of an accident before. That is, until now.
In the video below, it would appear that this road junction is to RTC’s what a lightbulb is to a moth.
In the footage, there are several RTC’s caused mostly by drivers not paying attention to what is happening in front of them.
And after each accident, the same two dogs run over to the ‘scene’ only to get within feet of the vehicles, before doing a 180 and heading back in the opposite direction.
But why are they running TOWARDS the accident?
I’m no Cesar Milan, but maybe they are fed up at being woken up each time there is an RTC?
Or maybe they are hoping that one of the vehicles involved in an accident might be carrying dog treats or a load of meat and that the contents might end up being shed all over the floor?
Perhaps they are trained Community First Responders (CFRs) but are able to quickly establish that there are no injuries and that thus their services are not required?
Or maybe they are just hoping that they get to star in the viral footage of the accidents, having been responsible for the footage going viral in the first place?
So many questions…..
