One Utah reporter got the surprise of her life as a beast walked by her during a live broadcast.Social media lit up with a debate over whether it was a dog or mountain lion. Utah wildlife officials investigated the scene and confirmed "they were definitely dog tracks.”
Later, the dog was tracked down. His name is Pooch. He's a friendly 12-year-old half Australian Shepard, half German Shepard. The owners released a photo to let everyone know there is no reason to be afraid.
In the reporters defense, it was dark and raining and well, even a large dog could be scary in those conditions!
