Liga MX Club Stops At Nothing To Find Pitch-Invading Dog

Tunita is the latest and greatest doggo in Mexico's rich history of animal pitch invaders.

What a start to the 2020 Clausura season for Atlético San Luis. After battling to a 0-0 draw with perennial power Tigres at Estadio Universitario on opening day, Atlético San Luis defeated Cruz Azul 2-1 last Friday to place itself at the top of the table alongside Chivas and Pumas. 

What’s more, Atlético San Luis used the victory to scout a potential new signing. In the 27th minute, Tunita made her appearance in front of an announced crowd of 21,670. They were all enthralled with what they saw.

After some how making her way onto the pitch at Estadio Alfonso Lastras, Tunita magically disappeared. Following the game, Atlético San Luis’ Twitter account stated that Tunita had left our lives just as quickly as she’d entered them. She'd escaped. 

If anyone could offer any information on Tunita’s whereabouts, a jersey was promised in return.

Did anyone have any info? ANY AT ALL?!

The hours turned to days, but the search continued.

That Tunita must be found — I don't care how high the cost is with regards to money or human life. 

But things looked bleak. Despite asking for more information and stating a desire to make Tunita a part of the family, no clues had arrived concerning her whereabouts on Saturday.

However, a breakthrough in the case was made on Sunday and a new signing was announced…

IT’S TUNITA!

Tunita has been welcomed by the squad.

And is now front page news.

And also pretty damn good.
