We have had 7 calls from parents this week complaining of out-of-control dogs being brought to the bus stop as the owners see their children off/meet their children returning. Kids are already excited during these times, and this energy is making the dogs skittish and unruly. One child has even said one dog was trying to bite her ankles.
PLEASE LEAVE YOUR DOGS AT HOME! DO NOT BRING THEM TO THE BUS STOP!
Chapter 4 of the Lake County Ordinance Rules covers all laws about Animal Control and unruly pets. The owner will be held responsible for the action of their dog, and if Animal Control deems the animal dangerous it can be taken from the owner, confined at the owner’s expense, and possibly euthanized.
Please protect yourself, your pet, and other residents: Leave your dogs at home during school bus pick-ups & drop-offs.
