POLICE were out trying to catch a dog which had been causing motorists to swerve out of the way on the A14 earlier.


Officers were on the busy road at junction 51, Coddenham, near Needham Market, where numerous sightings of the husky had been reported.

The dog was first reported to police at about 10.30am when it was spotted running up the embankment of the eastbound carriageway.

Motorists stopped to try and catch the dog and police also received a call from the owner – who was also out trying to help.

A rolling road block was put in place to bring cars to a halt.

Earlier today the dog was reported to have moved away but the husky returned at 4pm.

Police went out to catch the dog again but on arrival could not find the pet.



  • Thanks everyone for looking and reporting the sightings. Cody has now been found and reunited with his owners.

  • I saw this dog yesterday (wed) at about 1545, it was walking down the A1120 just outside Stonham Aspel, very lucky dog as I had to brake hard to avoid it in my lorry. Hope they catch it safe and well.
