I am attack victim No. 3 of a dog that has been declared dangerous by the city of Hammond.
Since being declared dangerous, the owner lets the dog roam loose in our neighborhood. This has been documented on at least five separate occasions to animal control. However, animal control will do nothing to secure this dog or protect Hammond citizens. In response to dog attacks, animal control issues a ticket to the owner.
Once the owner goes to court, the referee (a lawyer pretending to be a judge) gives him additional time to secure the dangerous dog. The city attorney even declined action, telling me to do what I have to do to protect myself and my family.
Hammond residents beware. This guy has more than three months to secure a dangerous dog that has attacked three people! Hopefully, no one in your family will be victim No. 4.
