Video: Dog gets loose, joins World Cup cross-country skiing race

A loose dog ran onto the course at a World Cup cross-country skiing race Sunday, joining the three leaders in Quebec City.

The dog ran around the skiers for about 10 seconds before letting them go by.

“It happens in cycling races, but I’ve never seen it in skiing,” Canadian second-place finisher Alex Harvey said, according to the Canadian Press. “It just makes the story even better because luckily no one crashed or got hurt.”
