The Coeur d’Alene Police Animal Control Division is requesting citizens make plans for their pets on the 4th of July. Animal control deals with a large volume of dogs that become frightened by the noise of fireworks and run from their residence. This results in many more calls for service of dogs “running at large”. The dogs are put at risk of being hit by a car, fighting with other dogs, or possibly biting someone out of fear. Police Chief Wayne Longo asks citizens to “please use caution over the holiday weekend and be aware that due to the increase in calls for service our response will be prioritized but we will try and respond as we are available”/Sgt. Christie Wood, Coeur d'Alene Police Department news release. Full release here.
