At 12:15 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 16, a runner in the 1300 block of 22nd Street reported that a dog who is off-leash chases him when he runs on a public trail that passes the dog’s home. He hadn’t been bitten, but when he confronted the dog’s owners, he said they were argumentative. Officers went to the dog’s home and were greeted by a small terrier that was on its property. The dog’s owner said the issue with the runner had been ongoing, and she was considering getting a protection order against the runner. The trail the runner uses was behind the front yard of her residence. She said her dog stays in her yard. Officers advised her about leash laws. The runner believed the dog was acting aggressively, but the officer told him he didn’t believe that was the case. He suggested the runner use an alternate route.
