Stray Dogs Picked up in Manteca
Manteca, CA - Manteca is in the news again, and so is our favorite Animal Control Officer Cindy Schick. Wednesday morning, officers received a call that two pit bulls and a chihuahua were loose and would not let an elderly woman and her grandchildren out of her car.
Joanne Lund, a neighbor, called animal control about the loose dogs. "Those dogs live next door to me, and they're dangerous," Lund said. "The woman in her car was in her late 70s and was taking her grandchildren to school."
Schick said that Animal services has had problems before with one of the pit bulls and the Chihuahua, adding the owners recently bought another pit bull.
"The dogs do have an attitude when out on the street," she said.
DogsBite.org notes that these irresponsible owners now have 3 dogs instead of 2, and 2 of which are pit bulls. This can't make neighbors feel too happy or safe.
