New Canaan Police issued a verbal warning to the owners of two Avalon Drive East dogs after one of them (the dogs) bit a neighbor’s canine in the back. The head of the Police Department’s Animal Control section had a difficult time connecting with the owners of the attacking dog immediately after the incident on the afternoon of Jan. 16 (a Wednesday).
The owner of the victim animal, a Brussels Griffon named ‘Enzo,’ told police that his son had been walking his own family’s two dogs outside their apartment complex when the attacking beast grabbed Enzo and began to shake him, according to an incident report obtained by NewCanaanite.com through a Freedom of Information request. The individual walking the attacking dog, described as a boy, could not control his own dogs and the skirmish left Enzo with a puncture wound in his back, police according to the report. When Officer Allyson Halm, the head of Animal Control, tried to get contact information for the attacking dog’s owners, a representative of Avalon’s business office told her he was not at liberty to provide it, the report said.
