Neighbors in a northern California county called police when they thought a prowler was peaking out windows of a home earlier this week.

A Facebook post from the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office says when deputies showed up at the home they realized the alleged prowler was larger than they had suspected and had four legs.

Deputies soon realized the culprit was a Great Dane attempting to escape from the home through an unsecured skylight.

Because of the "bad dog" behavior, the sheriff's office says the pooch wasn’t given any treats.
