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:
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.
