On Jan. 7, my neighbor's dog tried to attack me as I was knocking on their door to inform them their unleashed dog had been out in the subzero temperatures for more than 15 minutes.
I have called the Porter County Animal Control officer on a number of occasions, as have many of my neighbors, regarding this family's lack of care, courtesy and respect for their animal and their neighbors.
In the summer, the dog is usually tied to a tree all day with no food or water and is left to bark uncontrollably.
At what point is the animal control officer going to do something regarding this dangerous animal? Are they going to wait until a child is mauled and killed before they actually address the issue?
