(KMOV) – The St. Louis Animal Control showed up four hours after a south city woman called for help, as her dog was being attacked by her neighbor’s dog.
Amy Bolego called 911 after she says she discovered the neighbor’s Rottweiler had jumped her fence and began attacking her American Bulldog, Rocky. The operator told Bolego to call animal control.
Bolego says the animal control arrived four hours later, after repeated calls to animal control and her alderman.
St. Louis Animal Control says they arrived to Amy Bolego’s home within 20 minutes of the phone call.
The neighbor eventually tied the Rottweiler up, on the same rope it escaped from, earlier that morning.
The supervisor of the St. Louis Animal Control says they need to look more deeply into whether or not to deem the Rottweiler potentially dangerous. They will also look into whether to take the dog away from its owner or to build a stronger fence.
