At the start of summer, everyone wants to be outside enjoying the warm weather, nature and the beautiful surroundings that we have in our county. Sometimes that enjoyment is hampered by others’ actions.
It seems as though my office and the office of the county judge-executive have been inundated with complaints about dogs. The complaints have included dogs running loose, people having too many dogs and allowing vicious dogs to run loose. As such, I decided to write this month’s column to clarify the various laws dealing with dogs that we should all live by.
