Richmond Hill Police blotter
Placeholder Image
Matter of record, May 22 – When Officer Paul Carter responded to a nuisance animal call on Sandpiper Drive, he was told by the complainant that “the dog belonging to the neighbor behind him climbs the fence and comes into his yard.”
That wasn’t all. The dog also left a certain calling card for the man, according to the police report. “(Complainant) stated the dog defecates and makes a mess in his yard. (Complainant) stated the dog has done this three times today and once yesterday.”
The complainant told Carter the dog may have been on its own for a few days and didn’t want to press charges against the owner, just wanted to have the matter recorded.
The officer tried to get in touch with the owners, but had no luck. In the meantime, “(complainant) came around the corner of the yard with the animal in question as the dog had again climbed over the fence.”
Carter tried once more to get in touch with the dog’s owner, but had no luck.
