LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- A Nevada Highway Patrol trooper and a Good Samaritan helped rescued two dogs roaming on a Las Vegas freeway on Thursday morning.

According to NHP Trooper Willner, a Good Samaritan corralled the dogs, two huskies, for him at the Interstate-15 and the 95. They had been running from Washington, NHP said.

“I wasn’t going to let these dogs get hit,” the driver told Trooper Willner.

Trooper Willner took the dogs in his patrol vehicle and handed them off to animal control.
