Police Cite Canoe Hill Road Woman After Two Dog-Biting Incidents

Police last month cited a Canoe Hill Road woman for two counts of nuisance dog after her Australian cattle dogs bit a UPS deliveryman multiple times on the arms, sending him to an urgent care facility. One of the dogs, a two-year-old named “George” (the other one is “Lenny”) already had bitten a passing neighbor the month before, after his vaccination for rabies had expired, according to police reports obtained by NewCanaanite.com through public records requests. The dogs first came on the radar of police Sept. 2, when a Canoe Hill Road neighbor phoned police that she found a dog roaming her property and “acting aggressively toward her,” according to an incident report from Animal Control Officer Allyson Halm. The neighbor heard a someone calling out “George” and at that time the dog left, the report said.
