Get your goddam animals under control

Posted By on Mon, Aug 20, 2018 at 4:17 PM

Your damn dog escaped and ran amok through my backyard where I was weeding this morning, scaring the hell out of me, and I yelled at you to remove him 'cos you were breaking the law. Yet again animal owners need to be reminded that your animal is NOT entitled to do what it wants and your animal running loose is illegal (by-law A-700). To you, he's an adorable "member of the family." To me, he's an animal with teeth and claws that can inflict injury and property damage.
And teach your cats to crap in an effing litter box and NOT in my garden beds that I have slaved over! I'm sick of the shit, stink, and flies. It shows such disrespect and contempt for neighbours who live quietly and don't bother anyone. There needs to be a public awareness campaign by HRM so animal owners can't claim ignorance of by-law A-700. Moreover, the onus of law enforcement should not be on ordinary citizens. "Complaint-driven," my arse! What are we paying you salaried by-law officers and cops for?
