From Richmond Hill Police Department reports:
Matter of record: From an old May 28 report comes what may be the best RHPD narrative on record, courtesy officer Jonathan Zirpolo.
“On (May 28 around 12:15 a.m.), I responded to the area of Smoke Rise Road regarding a barking dog. While checking the area I observed a small brown dog (Dachsund) running through several front yards while continually barking. The dog was chasing a cat who appeared to be highly agitated by the dog chasing it. Once the cat would stop, the dog would make several advances towards the cat. The cat, clearly not wanting to be shown any attention by the dog, went on the offensive and attempted to scare off the dog. The dog retreated and the cat ran away. However, once the dog saw the cat running away, the dog gave chase again.
The amount of noise being made by the quarreling couple equated to a nuisance and I felt the dog needed to be apprehended due to the obnoxious behavior shown towards the cat. After a brief foot pursuit, the dog laid on its back and surrendered to law enforcement. It was taken into custody without incident. No identification for the dog or its owner was found on the dog. Animal Control was requested to come retrieve the dog. They arrived a short time later and took the dog.”
