Stray dogs reported Monday in Cherokee Crossing

Neighbor Joan Hornberger reports another stray dog sighting yesterday afternoon:
I spotted 2 of the stray dogs on ... Cherokee Station Drive around 3:30 today....October 6th.  I was walking my dog and as soon as I got back to my house and got my phone and the number for Animal Control, I looked out the window and the dogs were gone.  I went out looking for them to no avail.  Too bad! I believe that these two were among the dogs that were on my lawn all day Labor Day.
Metro Animal Control has stepped up its efforts to locate the stray dogs that have been reported recently, including setting traps to catch them. If you do see stray dogs or other animals in the neighborhood, please report by calling (615) 862-7928.

    Just saw about 4 stray dogs on my front lawn at 44th and Nebraska. Called Metro Animal Control and reported the problem (Friday, October 16, 2009 2:31:58 PM).

  5. Yes, I saw them in the 4100 block and heading your way Jim. I called Animal Control at about the same time.


  6. Thanks for calling Animal Control, y'all, and for letting us know, too. Any word on whether they were able to catch the dogs?

  7. Oct. 30, I saw four big strays walking up Elkins towards 42nd, around 7:30 a.m. So I'm guessing this problem still exists.
