EmmeThompson who's attending school in Halifax said her dad and his girlfriend were walking her dog, Finn,on a trail near Tunnel Island back home inKenora. The trail travels through a wooded area.

"They thought they would let him off the leash a little bit to run around, and I guess he caught the scent of a deer, because he just all of a sudden took off into the bush and was gone," Thompson said. "He would not listen to any calls or whistles."

A few minutes later, the family got a call from KenoraOPP, saying they had Finn in custody. Finn, Thompson said, had been spotted chasing a deer across the frozen Lake of the Woods, and someone called the police.

"I think he caught up to [the deer], and they had a bit of a scuffle," Thompson said. "But it seemed to get away when the cop when chasing after him."

"He's a pretty small dog, so the deer could have easily taken him."

Finn was brought back to Thompson in the back of an OPP cruiser. A photo was posted on Twitter as of noon Monday, the photo had about 2,500 comments, 155,000 retweets, and more than half-a-million favourites.
