There was an overturned dog carrier at the scene, but in his report, the officer questioned if it would keep the dog out of the hot sun. It was noted in the report temperature for the day was 87 degrees.

The officer attempted to make contact at the residence where the dog was found, but got no answer.

The matter was referred to the county dog warden.

In a third dog case, the owner of a dog was given a verbal warning about allowing a dog to run at large.

A Pleasant Street resident told officers the dog had been at her home about noon, Thursday, May 24. She followed it back to a house in the 200 block of Wilson St., where it sat next to a doghouse.

Police located the owner the following day and advised her of the village ordinance prohibiting dogs from running loose.
