- A caller said the landlord from the neighboring property “came up on her porch, demanding that she clean the dog feces out of his yard.” The caller said she told the neighboring landlord that “her dog is in her own yard and not at the neighbor’s.” She said she was upset “that he approached her at her home and yelled at her.” An officer responded, listened to conflicting stories from the caller and the landlord and advised them “to leave each other alone.”
- A caller said his uncle “is trapping cats and releasing them in the country.” The caller said his uncle “has been told that is not legal.” According to the caller, a third party said the caller’s uncle “picked up his ex-wife’s cat and took it out in the country somewhere.” An officer responded.
- A caller said the neighbor’s dog “lunged at him and nearly bit him” while being walked. An officer responded and made contact with the owner of the dog, explaining “what would happen if the dog would hurt anyone.”
- A caller asked for assistance from the Perry Police Department “in removing a bird from the welding room at DMACC.” An officer responded but was unable to free the bird.
- The Humane Society of Perry asked for “extra patrol of the pound for the next couple of nights” because two pit bulls are held at the city’s animal shelter, “and a lot of people seem interested in them.” Officers responded. While at the city’s animal shelter, an officer spoke to a woman in a vehicle who said she “intends to spend the night outside the pound.” She said “she doesn’t want to leave because someone posted a ‘for sale’ poster on Facebook about her two pits being for sale when they are here on a 10-day bite notice and are not for sale.”
