Officers respond to reports of dogs locked in a car, dogs charging at people
The Park City Police Department responded to a series of unrelated calls involving dogs last week, including reports of dogs locked in cars and dogs charging at people.
Someone called Park City police officers to the China Bridge garage on Saturday, Aug. 30 at 10:09 p.m. after seeing two dogs locked in a car, the Police Department said.
According to the department, the dogs were inside a Subaru Forester with Colorado license plates.
Summit County indicated it did not have an animal-control officer on duty at the time, however. Park City police officers typically ask the county’s Animal Control department to handle similar cases.
Meanwhile, the police were called to Telemark Drive at 12:04 p.m. that day, when three dogs were reportedly charging at people. Someone told the police it appeared an electric fence confined two of the dogs to a yard, but the third dog was free.
On Friday, Aug. 29 at 1:12 p.m., a woman complained that two loose dogs kept her from getting out of her car in the China Bridge garage. Two pit bull-boxer mixes were on the third floor of the garage when the woman called, the police said.
On Wednesday, Aug. 27 at 8:17 a.m., two dogs, reportedly acting aggressively, were found in the road on the 2000 block of Lucky John Drive. An officer spoke to the owners, who said they would check the dogs electric-fence collars, the police said.
