MURRAY, Utah, Dec. 26 (UPI) -- Workers at a Murray, Utah, grocery store said surveillance video recorded a dog walking into the store and taking a rawhide bone.

Smith's Food & Drug store manager Roger Adamson said the dog entered the store, headed straight for the dog food aisle and picked up the $2.79 bone, KSL-TV, Salt Lake City, reported Friday.

Adamson said he confronted the shoplifting animal as it was attempting to leave the store.

"I looked at him. I said, 'Drop it!'" Adamson said. "I decided I wanted to keep all my fingers, so I didn't try to take it from him. He looked at me, and I looked at him, and he ran for the door and away he went, right out the front door."
