The dog has been seen in the area of Grant, Ash and South Park Streets. Police Chief Roger Parent said it seems to be afraid of people, and does not appear to be a threat to kids walking to and from school. He has been getting into garbage at night, looking for food.
Animal Control has set a live trap in town, attempting to catch the dog. “Our goal is to capture him and have Animal Control pick him up,” explained Chief Parent. “If anyone is able to secure him in a garage or fenced yard they should call the Cedar Springs Police Department and we will contact Animal Control to explain the importance of having this dog captured.”
Dogs picked up by animal control that remain unclaimed are evaluated and placed up for adoption as long as they are found to be healthy and behaviorally acceptable.
