Plenty of action recently for the Animal Control section of the New Canaan Police Department:

  • A bobcat sighting off of Smith Ridge Road, just south of Grace Farms, was reported at 1:32 p.m. on May 21.
  • A 4-year-old beagle on St. George Lane is under a 14-day home quarantine after biting its owner in the face when she went to kiss the sleeping dog. That happened on May 19.
  • A 2-year-old golden doodle on Oenoke Ridge Road on May 7 bit a child in the hand after the kid pounced on the dog from behind.
  • A Deep Valley Road dog owner has been fined $184 this week—$92 for each count of allowing a dog to roam, after a border collie and Australian shepherd (not for the first time) breached both invisible and physical fences at home, and turned up on Soundview Lane.
  • Henry the rooster has been adopted out of the NCPD animal shelter. He’ll be driven this weekend to SquirrelWood, an equine sanctuary in Montgomery, N.Y.

Did you hear that there are now salads and sandwiches on offer at Kaahve, the new coffee shop that opened some weeks ago at Main and East Avenue? Quinoa and Chicken Caesar Salads and Caprese, Vegetable Panini and Turkey Sandwiches (with apple and cheddar on a baguette) now round out its full complement of Turkish coffee and hot drinks. Kaahve also is soon to launch a loyalty program.


NCPD is cracking down on seat belt enforcement as part of a statewide “Click It or Ticket” campaign, which runs through June 5.


Finally, here’s a gallery of photos spotlighting locals, in everything from live events and fundraisers to youth sports and awards ceremonies:
