This is a cool story. Normally, it's not advised to pick up hitchhikers in Idaho. But, after hearing this story, you may want to reconsider that rule.

Eric Hansen was driving near Stanley, Idaho recently when he came across someone looking for a ride. Here's the story from his YouTube channel.

Was driving from Logan Idaho to Stanley, Idaho and saw a dog in the road about five miles from the town of Stanley, opened my door he jumped in, took him to Stanley, dropped him off at the police station where the police officer knew the owner. If you see a stray dog on the highway put it in your car, protect it so it doesn't get hit and die.

I'm not sure that I would be willing to do what Eric did. Somehow, I envision myself accidentally picking up a rabid beagle. Or, maybe I get to reenact the famous scene from the movie, Tommy Boy.
