If you felt the ground shake around 10:30 Wednesday night, don't worry, it wasn't an earthquake. It wasn't a wooly mammoth freshly unfrozen running and leaping around South Eastern Minnesota. It was just a dog as big as a house frolicking and stopping traffic in Kasson, Minnesota.

I reached out to the man trying to coral Moose, Aaron Galloway, to get the inside scoop. Mr. Galloway, take it away...

"I went out to check the mail just after 9 pm and Moose snuck out behind me (never underestimate the sneakiness of a giant dog). Normally he would just follow me right back inside but this time he got distracted.

It was a classic deer-in-headlights moment at first. And then, Moose being the big friendly giant that he is, decided he wanted to play with the cars.

Catching a 1-year-old, 150-pound Great Dane that isn’t interested in being caught is not an easy thing to do.

Trying to stop a running Dane is like stepping in front of a freight train, so I’m pretty proud of the way I was able to lasso him with one arm and get him out of the road.

I would also like to say thank you to the people in the cars for paying attention and waiting patiently as I wrangled my house horse out of the street. You are good humans and neighbors."
