Dog attack

City Officers will make contact to follow up every reported dog attack.

Dog attacks can take many forms including:

  • Aggressively rushing at or harassing any person or animal
  • Biting or causing physical injury to a person or animal
  • Tearing clothing on or causing damage to the property of any person attacked
  • Attempting to attack or behaving in a manner that would cause fear of physical injury.

Upon receipt of a dog attack report, a City Officer will:

  • Investigate the dog attack report
  • Take the appropriate action based on that investigation.
