Reports state the dog even tried to bite one of the police officers and paramedics who tried to take it away from its owner.
The incident took place on the train tracks of Montemorelos, in the northeastern Mexican state of Nuevo Leon.
Local residents claim the dog’s owner was an alcoholic and that his pet had accompanied him for several years.
