They can be our best friends and closest companions, but in certain situations a friendly dog may snap.
When a dog gets out of the comfort of their home and they start to roam the streets, this can present a danger to others. So there are some important things to think about if you are ever in this situation.
Mesa County Animal Services Director, Penny McCarty says, "You want to let the animal come to you, if you see fearfulness or aggressive behavior, like growling, you want to stop right there and give us a call so we can handle it."
If you would like to report an aggressive or neglected animal contact Mesa County Animal Services at: (970) 242- 4646
