HOUSTON An elusive pit bull kept officers very busy Friday on the south side of town.

According to the Houston Police Department, a pit bull was seen running down the side of the Gulf Freeway near Lockwood at around 9:30 a.m.

A driver stopped to help the dog, but it tried to bite him. When an officer also stopped to help, the dog tried to bite him, too.

Several officers were called in where they finally tranquilized the dog under a house and gave him to Animal Services.
