A dog's gotta do what a dog's gotta do—and if that means breaking out of a veterinary clinic after undergoing surgery, so be it! Pharaoh, a 9-year-old German Shepherd, managed to get out of his cage at a Hauppauge, Long Island clinic, and then, Newsday reports, "opened the back door"—which had a deadbolt—"unlatched a gate and fled." Here's video of Pharaoh, wearing his surgical cone, working the door:

WABC 7 reports that on the outside, Pharaoh "was confronted by a giant fence. It stands more than six feet tall. So he jumped up and with his front paws he pushed down on a lever, opened the door and away he went." He was discovered in a Smithtown park, by a passerby who noticed he was still in his surgical collar. The 75-pound dog is doing well and is recovering back at home.
