Animal Control

The Park City Council approved a pilot off leash dog program leaving the Summit County Council  and its staff wondering the the role for the county Animal Control Department will be. Rick Brough has more.

The Summit County Council today will have another look at its proposed animal control ordinance and is planning a field trip on Thursday to look at the proposed wilderness areas. KPCW's Leslie Thatcher has more.

The Summit County's Attorney's has declined to prosecute a Summit Park resident who shot and killed a moose after it attacked his dog about two weeks ago.

Chief Prosecutor Matthew Bates, wrote in a letter that the shooter, who legally had a 40 caliber semi-automatic hand gun under a conceal-carry permit, acted in self defense when he fired twice at the moose.

Bates, however,  said he was referring the case to Animal Control, to site the shooter for walking his dog off leash. Rick Brough has more.

Summit County Animal Control is investigating a report of a dog that was shot and killed in lower Pinebrook Monday morning. KPCW's Leslie Thatcher reports.
