During the Mir24 TV news, Ilona Linarte was reading the news when she was startled by a barking dog.

In the video, she looks down, then draws a dramatic breath. The dog then pops its head above the desk.

“I’ve got a dog here,” she says in Russian. “What is this dog doing in the studio?”

Then, Linarte starts yelling who knows what as the dog drifts toward papers and a computer on her desk. Finally, she pets the dog.

Which is probably all the fella, who was in studio for another segment and got loose, wanted in the first place.
