The county’s animal control officer, Pat Spalding, has received several complaints about dogs running loose. Sheriff Tommy Bartley said there’s a particular problem with loose dogs in the East Texas area.
“Things were slow from March 22 through April 20,” Spalding told the Washington County Fiscal Court on Friday. “I only took five dogs to Lebanon, and I had five complaints.”
Among those five complaints was one of a woman who is allegedly using her property as a rescue center.
