It has been a long time since we have had an incident involving dogs in our community, and I thank everyone with dogs for being considerate and responsible owners.
However in the last month we have had two dog attacks. The first resulted in a severely mauled dog which required two surgeries, and the second involved an attack on a homeowner walking a leashed dog along the road.
- Per VI Law all dogs on private property must be restrained, via fence or tether, at all times.
- Dogs on public or community property must be on leashes 6′ or less in length at all times.
We have a zero tolerance policy toward vicious animals loose in our neighborhood. All dog attacks will be reported to DPNR and the St. Croix Animal Welfare Center and this association will cooperate fully with any investigation and prosecution that may arise from repeat incidents of animal attacks.
