Mahalo to the Hood River Sheriff’s Office for this terrific post on their Facebook page:
Pursuit in Parkdale Ends Peacefully
Last weekend HRSO deputies engaged in a pursuit in the Parkdale area. Lasting about 45 minutes, the pursuit only covered approximately 2.5 miles of roadway.
Deputies tried to turn it into a high-speed pursuit, but the subject was having none of it. At one point the incident turned into a standoff, as depicted in the picture.
Had the unnamed cameraman held the camera a little lower, we might have glimpsed a cold sweat beading the brow of Deputy Plese while staring down the subject. In the end, the iron will of the Sheriff’s Office prevailed, and the subject moved along, the pursuit ending in a field a short time later. No one was injured.
In the meantime, discussions will be had about making the Cow Whisperer an on-call position.
Just another day in the life.
Stay safe out there.
