I’d like to address a viral facebook post that has recently been brought to my attention.

The author of the post writes.
“After multiple calls to Pittsfield police and lanesborough police and this piece of sh*t hasn’t gotten in trouble”.

The post is in regards to a dog the author claims is being neglected by its owner.

The fact is that lanesborough police/ Animal control had met with the owner and the dog prior to this viral post in an unrelated matter and hadn’t observed any cause for concern of neglect or abuse. The dog appears to be well cared for despite some of the opinions and mob mentality shown in that post.

It’s disappointing that this post has generated
699 comments,
412 shares and 92
emojis but despite the authors claim that multiple people have called to complain the fact is not one single person has called to report this to the lanesborough police or animal control.

If you need to report an emergency please call 911 or the appropriate department directly as we do not monitor Facebook 24/7.

At a minimum this dogs basic needs are being met. As far as the claims of abuse and being left outside too long, again, not a single call to report an issue other than a “barking dog” complaint on October 30th that was unfounded.

Respectfully,

Officer Jason Costa
Lanesborough Police
Animal Control.

Year after year this tree at the corner of Bull Hill Rd. and South Main seems to be the first in town to change colors. Fall is on its way and it’s a great time of year to get out and enjoy the outdoors! So don’t go putting those bike’s away just yet and stay tuned for another community bike ride coming soon, Fall foliage style! 🚴🏻‍♂️🍁

Hello Lanesboro animal lovers. I am not sure what type of wild cats these are but wanted to share so we can all be aware. This morning we had both of them in our back yard together fairly close to the house and in daylight. Haven’t seen them before but have heard a lot of cries at night.

Im hear to say I’m very disappointed in Pittsfield police department/ animal control along with lanesborough!! The fact nothing still hasn’t been done about a dog is heartbreaking. It is getting colder and colder outside as the days/nights go by. There’s a poor dog that’s been outside 24/7 both in the summer time and now as winter is coming this poor dog is still outside all day and all night. Crying, whining, not being socialized, I work ALOT across the street from this gentleman’s house and not once have I seen him get fed or get water. I always thought this poor baby was going inside but as I’ve paid more and more attention, he’s outside constantly. He is skinnier now than he’s ever been, he does nothing but pace in his cage. Many people have reported this man, between the employees at the company that is right next door to him along with myself and many many others and nothing has been done. I’ve personally seen this man and his grandson, on 4th of July, pull on this dog til he choked, cried, just to push him into the lake. The dog In the process had tried with all his strength to stop them, pulling away from them and everything. I’ve seen the boy tease him, along with both the grandfather and grandson hit and abuse this poor dog. The only time the boy comes near the dog, is too take away the only toys he has in his cage, tease him with these toys and make him think he’s gonna play, just for the boy to go inside with the toys and leave the dog alone. I’m sorry I can understand summer time but it’s getting colder and colder out now!! THIS IS ALL ABUSE AND SOMETHING NEEDS TO BE DONE.
Lost DOG! Angelo! Loved, family cattle dog. Tan and black.No tail. Skittish. May approach if someone sits down. Lost since August 2019 (in Vermont) REWARD for safe return. Thankyou!!! Please call 406 253 6154 if seen/found. Thank you!!!
Why, oh why were the pool bags/ receptacles taken down around the park on Narragansett?????
MACK IS HOME! Found a little worse for wear but safe! TY all for sharing!
My dog Mack is missing. He bolted on Balance Rock Road because of the fireworks. He's really scared. Please let me know if you see him.
We had a honeybee hive swarm from Olsen Farm about an hour ago, it flew toward Balance Rock Park. Honeybee swarms are pretty calm, and we are trying to lure them back home but they flew off very quickly If you see a swarm of honeybees (like photo attached) around town PLEASE let us know, PLEASE do not spray them- we will come get them!!
