Animal Control Begins with Enforcement of Our Existing Animal Control Ordinance

For too long, I’ve heard stories about my neighbors losing livestock and pets to “stray” dogs or animals that are “off premise” – not contained on the owner’s property. 

This has got to stop.

Just weeks ago, one neighbor’s goat was killed by their neighbor’s dog and the photographic evidence was put on Facebook for all to see.

To my knowledge, the city has not taken action.

In fact, the city, on their website, says:

“Currently, the city does not have an animal control officer so any complaints concerning strays or safety of animals should be reported to the proper authorities.”

Simonton does, indeed, have an animal control officer – and you will be surprised to know who it is.

What good is it for the city to have an ordinance that it chooses to ignore?
