A dog that had been missing since Dec. 30 wreaked havoc by running around on the J-M-Z tracks over the Williamsburg Bridge on Tuesday, but is now back with its owner.

Subway riders were angry because their trains were stuck on both sides of the bridge for more than an hour while MTA crews investigated. Some riders, unable to wait, reportedly relieved themselves in between the cars, according to Gothamist.

One tweeter, who called himself Jor-El, wrote, “People are now trying to pay each other for cigarettes. It takes an hour and a half and one dog for a New York subway to convert to prison rules.””

Another man, John Smith, tweeted, “A cop just walked by with a bowl of dog food.”

Thanks to a joint effort by NYPD, the Emergency Services Unit, MTA personnel and others, the dog, whose name was Jake, was finally rescued, Gothamist reported. He’s now safe and sound with his owner, Brooklyn resident Thayer Joyce.
