Animal Control Sweeps for Dogs in Effort to Control Stray Problem
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -
Corpus Christi's Animal Control was out in force Wednesday morning on the city's westside as they continue to try and get the stray dog problem under control.
Officers on Virginia had their hands full as they were trying to lasso a small mixed-breed dog, which ended up belonging to a two-year old girl and her family. Leslie Alvarado was outside and watching all the action.
"We're going to give him his dog back," Animal Control Officer Luis Garza said. "He's getting citations for the dog being loose and the dog not being registered with the city, so hopefully he can block whatever holes are around the fence and keep his dog restrained properly."
"They had the right to do it, but she keeps coming out through the gate and it's my little granddaughter's dog," pet owner Conrado Alvarado said. "We're going to try to keep her tied up, keep her in there."
