No walk in the park!
Sometime within the last few days some homeless people have made the parkette near my house their home. They seem to keep to themselves until the evening when they are finished with their bottle of poison. In the evening they get loud and we can hear them if the windows are open Most of the time they lie under the trees near the back of the park and generally don't bother anyone.
My beef is that they have two dogs. A lab and a pitbull. Yes, a pitbull! The dogs are constantly barking and they don't appear to be very healthy or cared for. The pitbull is large also. I am terrified to bring my small poodle into that park now!
The police were there today and told them to leave. They left and at this very moment are back!
I am livid. I pay taxes. They don't. I have to walk completely out of my way to avoid this parkette and the vagrants with their out of control pets.
I called animal control. Do you know what animal control told me? Due to the fact that these people are homeless and do not have a fixed address they cannot do anything to fine them! In other words, people who work hard to have a roof over their heads can be fined but, not these people who somehow manage to find money for cigarettes and alcohol.
I have been worried sick about this pitbull. My poor dog would be an h'ordeuve for the massive pitbull!
Animal control told me that unless the pitbull attacks another dog or human being they cannot do anything! And the best part is that if it is does strike I have to go to court because I made a call to complain. Sheesh! No wonder people simply do not want to get involved anymore.
I said to the animal control guy "This is like telling me that a pediophile is two doors away and I have a young child and you CANNOT DO ANYTHING UNTIL THEY STRIKE?"
He didn't see any similarity. You would think working for animal control he would have a little compassion for animals.........no.
I simply do not understand this logic and am very upset. Thus, have not slept due to worry and thus, have not been blogging.
It is only a matter of time before that pitbull strikes. I hear it barking and growling like crazy whenever a person or animal passes in it's path. The clock is ticking and folks, there is nothing we can do about it.
Welcome to Canada. Home of the incredibly stupid by-laws.
CUZ I SAID SO!
