Animal Control, Not just a good idea it’s the law !

We recently had a situation here in Lovells which is a sobering reminder of why Crawford County adopted a comprehensive Animal Control Ordinance.  In the recent case in Lovells, a canine left its property and traveled into the roadway and collided with bicyclist causing a crash. The rider was left  with severe injuries,  requiring hospitalization and substantial time off of work.  It could have been much worse, for both the person involved and the dog.  So, for the safety of people, our pets and just being a good neighbor, make sure that your pets and any livestock are appropriately controlled.  If you have any questions regarding your responsibilities under the county’s Animal Control Ordinance, you can find it here.
