Officers with the California Highway Patrol had their hands full Monday night trying to round-up six dogs that got loose on the 710 Freeway after getting out of a car that was being pursued in Long Beach.

The chase began around 9:25 p.m. on the westbound 91 Freeway near Atlantic Boulevard, according to CHP Officer Alex Rubio.

The woman had been driving on the right shoulder of the freeway and took off when officers approached, Rubio stated.

It took two PIT maneuvers to stop the vehicle, aerial video showed.

After the car finally stopped, it still took several minutes before the driver exited.

Inside the car, the woman appeared to be focused on the dogs, aerial video showed.

As officers waited for her to get out, they shut down both sides of the freeway as a precaution.

When she finally opened the door, the dogs jumped out of the car and began running around in traffic lanes.

The woman and the dogs were finally taken into custody safely.

The freeway was eventually reopened.
