We received the following note earlier today (Thursday, March 1, 2012) from Tangletown resident MJ Welling:
Thought perhaps readers should be aware that 2 dogs from the neighborhood between Latona and 5th, NE 57th to perhaps NE 54thstreet have been seen running loose several times.
On Wednesday, February 22, my neighbor and my mailman saw these two dogs kill my 15+ yo cat in my front yard at 349 NE 57th Street. The mailman tried to intervene but was too late. He informed me that he had seen the owner out looking for the dogs again several days later and informed this person of what had happened.
These dogs need to be kept in their yard and off the streets. The owner needs to take this seriously.
On Friday, Feb. 17, three chickens were killed by two dogs that were running loose in Tangletown. You can read about that incident here.
