POLICE IN OREM, Utah, say a man who thought he was getting a call from a burglar had actually gotten a call from… his dog.

Authorities in the community south of Salt Lake City say the man contacted police on Wednesday after he received a phone call from his home phone on his cellphone.

Officials say the man heard banging and scratching noises on the line and figured it was an intruder.

Police went to the man’s home, but didn’t find anything missing or broken.

The man later called officers and told them he figured out the mystery. He said his dog had grabbed the home phone’s receiver and apparently hit the redial button while burying it in the backyard.
