Police Report: Loose Dogs and Catcalls

blacklabOn May 22, a woman told police she needed assistance managing a loose black lab that was jumping at her and attempting to play with her dog at Boulevard and White Road. When patrol arrived, patrol observed the woman holding her own brown dog at shoulder level, while the black lab was close by her side. The lab did not have any tags or a proper leash. It took patrol several attempts to take control of the lab, as it ran along Boulevard and White and Johnson roads. According to police, the lab attempted to make contact with other dog walkers and pets in the area in what appeared to be an orderly but excited manner. Patrol attempted to find the lab's owner by knocking on doors on Clarence Road, near to where the woman first encountered the dog. Patrol found the owner, a Clarence Road resident, who was not aware that his dog had gotten loose. The owner thanked patrol for retrieving his dog. Patrol issued the owner a summons for having a dog at large.
