(WFRV) – A family making the 400+ mile journey from Wisconsin back to Ohio was separated, temporarily, from their labrador ‘Satch’.

According to the Wisconsin State Patrol, on Monday, Nov. 22 Satch jumped out of a horse trailer in a parking lot. He then decided to make his way to a few local businesses near the interstate in DeForest.

Satch was then dropped off at the Southwest Region Headquarters and visited with local troopers. After hanging out in dispatch for a little while, Satch was reunited with his family.

The family was making their way back to Ohio.

Based on the picture taken with a trooper, Satch looks like he wanted to continue exploring all that Wisconsin has to offer.

DeForest is about an hour and a half south of Oshkosh.
