Horner's dogs Ghost, Riley, and Muffin are trained to protect the family's cattle herd, so when they sound the alarm she always comes running.

Luckily, she caught the dog's latest alert on camera and shared it to TikTok. Muffin, who's still in training, was yapping and came to get Horner for help.

The hysterical viral TikTok shows Ghost and Riley barking wildly at something on the ground near the property fence.

One commenter joked, "They were right to alert you to the presence of the tactical attack rock."

Another quipped, "In their defense, that is a dinosaur."

"At first I was relieved it wasn't something worse," Horner told Newsweek.

"But then I just thought it was so funny they were going crazy over a snapping turtle."

She added, "I was proud of them for doing their jobs!"

Snapping turtles are harmless unless provoked. If you upset one of these critters, they'll bite or snap.

Horner's husband reportedly diffused the situation and kept the dogs safe by moving the turtle to the pound.
