Animal Control Officer

Each month the Police Department also files a report about activity of the Animal Control Officer.  Last month, Antonio LeBlanc  dealt with a number of issues:

Traps Distributed

  • Squirrel: 0
  • Raccoon: 6
  • Cat: 1
  • Skunk: 4
  • Beaver:  0
  • Porcupine: 0

What keeps LeBlanc the busiest is complaints about dogs.  Last month he looked into 5 complaints of dogs running at large, 1 complaint about a barking dog, 8 complaints of dogs without tags, and 2 complaints about poop-n-scoop violations.

LeBlanc also received one call about a coyote or fox.

Two other incidents were included in LeBlanc's report:  one where he had to take a cross pit bull out of the city after it was left in an apartment at 351 Sunnyside Avenue.
