One thing after another...
Well I've been under the weather to start...I get called in to an office as I am about ready to leave work. I walk in to a group of 5-8 officers and I know the deal already...warrant... so needless to say a nice 8 hour shift turns into a long two days....
Thursday I came home (from working late the night before and very early on Thursday--long 2 days) to find out that my dog had a spaz attack and had gotten loose.
My dog jumped through the screen door (of my enclosed porch) and scaled a 6 foot privacy fence and it's off to the races. I have a business card from animal control saying to call them immediately, so I do. I'm informed that my dog was loose since lunch time (I arrived home at 1630) and was playing in traffic...also mysteriously the collar that my dog had on when I left home that morning, had magically disappeared. No one knows anything about this. Animal control informs me that I will be receiving a $900.00 fine for not having the dog's id properly displayed and a host of other very "creative" issues (many of which I am investigating). Oh and I was also informed that should it happen again, I will be charged with animal cruelty and my dog would be destroyed .... To my own stupid self...I did not renew my dog license and it is expired...fair...my wrong and I'll take that one on the chin
So here is me coming home from working a search warrant and arresting 2 fugitives (after working a total of about 32 hours in 2 days)to being threatened with my very own arrest warrant and a $900.00 bulls&#$ fine!
I mean man...I've heard of brotherly love but WOW...this is a bit much! A brother LEO (at least I think animal control is LE in my area) is telling me I'll be arrested the next time!
For the record...my dog did NOT bite, attempt to bite, attack, attempt to attack, jump on, scare, or threaten any person or child in the neighborhood nor did he cause any type of accident, thank god...he was simply out for an afternoon jog and was too fast for animal control to catch He is not a pit bull, german shepherd, rotty, or any other stereotyped breed of canine, just a good, playful, 2 year old spawn of Houdini...
Luckily after walking around the block calling for my dogâ€¦he was sitting on my front steps wagging his tailâ€¦.unharmed

now that is what I call a bad day. Let me know what you find out about some of those charges that Animal Control came up with. I have always wondered about some of those AC officers, and from watching Animal Cops (what can I say I like LE and Animals) it seems like often the stuff they come up with is exagerated.

I feel your pain. But, tell me this; How can animal control issue tickets for a dog that you thought had run off, but you find sitting on your front porch? It would be different if they found him running at large and captured him, thus making a positive I.D.DelC“You never know if quotes on the internet are genuine or not" . . . Abraham Lincoln
