MERIDEN, CT (WFSB) -

The owners of a pair of roaming pit bulls are being sought in Meriden.

Meriden animal control said the two dogs were found Thursday morning along Interstate-691 in the area of exit 8.

Both are described as being white and gray.

State police told animal control that they began receiving reports of the loose animals around 8:30 a.m.

Troopers were able to capture them, which briefly led to a traffic slowdown on the highway.

The dogs were in the care of animal control as of early Thursday afternoon.
