BAYONNE, NJ - A wayward pooch attempted a daring get away when pursued by the Bayonne Police Department shortly before 3:00 p.m. on Saturday.

According to reports, Cher, a large white bulldog, made his way to Denis Collins Park near First Avenue, and, just as she was about to captured made a leap into the bay.

Not to be outdone, members of the Bayonne Fire Department reported to the scene in Marine 1 and safely managed to pull the pup, now struggling in the choppy waters, aboard.
