Owner: Dogs should be free. Police: City law says -- not
A 33-year-old local man was cited before midnight Saturday, Jan. 4, for dog running at large. The dog’s owner said he would fight the citation in court because he believes dogs shouldn’t be kept tied up in a yard.
The collar-less dog, reportedly a spaniel named Cooper, had been running loose in sub-zero cold for hours, jumping on people, crossing the road. It was licking at its icy paws.
