After two years of being shut in their homes, the residents of Franconia, Virginia can rest easy. Biscuit’s reign of terror is over.
The Shih Tzu and his 44 tick accomplices evaded authorities for two months, stealing cat food and loitering on porches. The fugitive dog also dug through household trash, and authorities still don’t know how many identities he stole to throw them off his scent.
It eventually took a posse of 14 animal control officers and deputized townspeople to surround Biscuit, which culminated in the climactic Pole-netting at the Beulah Street Leaf Pile.
Since capture, Biscuit has been shaved and processed into the custody of the Deepwood Veterinary Clinic in Centreville, after which he will be released into a halfway home to determine if he can be rehabilitated.
