Vicious Dogs In Montana? This Woman’s Experience Is Heartbreaking
I am part of a social media group that is basically designed to give neighbors a "heads up" about things going on in their parts of town. I scroll through it daily to see if anyone needs help with anything, if there is any news about construction happening, etc.
The best thing about the group is that it literally is just neighbors being neighbors. No drama, just pure kindness. So when I read about what this woman witnessed, I couldn't help but feel so incredibly sad.
For her privacy, I will black out her name. Here is the situation:
So my question is, what do you do in this situation? Many of the friendly neighbors suggest contacting the FWP, which I think makes sense. Is there another way that this situation needs to be dealt with?
This isn't the first time that I have heard about situations with dogs that are aggressive. It was only a few weeks ago that a lady was telling me about how she didn't want to bring her one year old puppy to the dog park. I had asked if they go, and she said:
There have been too many dogs that are out of control there. I don't want to risk my little guy getting bit or attacked. -Bozeman Resident
It made me sad for the puppy, but knowing that he has a big brother dog at home that he plays with made me feel a little better. And they are both such good pups!
Other than making sure all dogs are on a leash, what is the protocol for parks and trails that do not require leashes? I mean, the dog parks are one of the highlights for sure when living in such a beautiful place.
Have you had any encounters with aggressive dogs? Do you have an aggressive dog? How have you dealt with this situation if you have been in it? Hopefully the deer is ok and the owners of those dogs take some accountability.
