Emme Thompson is a 21-year-old student at Dalhousie University. Her family is based in Kenora, Ontario.
Thompson's family has a mixed-breed rescue dog called Finn.
Thompson told BuzzFeed News that Saturday, her dad and his girlfriend were taking Finn for a walk on a local trail when they let him off his leash.
When the pair were headed back to the trail, they got a call from Ontario Provincial Police.
The police told them that they had found Finn after he caused some chaos chasing a deer along a road. "He’s an extremely fast runner and inevitably caught up to the deer where they had a bit of a scrap, he’s much smaller than a deer so it got away and he gave up the chase."
