An extraordinarily loyal Spanish sheepdog has hit national newspapers after he pursued a truck, stacked with his destined herd, down a risky motorway as they were moved to a slaughterhouse.
The canine, named Piqué, pursued the herd of sheep – which he had secured since he was a youthful puppy – for miles down the AP7 motorway close Barcelona.
Piqué was safeguarded by neighborhood police, who shared the tragic story of the canine who “protects his pack until the end” online.

Concerned drivers advised police of Piqué pursuing a van down the roadway, and fortunately, he got away without injury. Anyway, the equivalent can’t be said for his dear flock who proceeded to meet their cruel destiny at the slaughterhouse.
Police composed that while “animals never cease to surprise us,” they mentioned that guardians must keep their pets safe and use this “beautiful dog” as an example for why we should “make an effort to improve their lives.”
“They teach us many things, some of these things call it instinct. But, in fact, they are qualities that sometimes make our own. If they were humans we would be talking about values,” the sincere police proclamation read.
The film like story got features in a few Spanish publications who praised Piqué’s heroic endeavors.
