A New Canaan resident has been fined after his dog ran off property and attacked two others walking past.

Nobody was hurt in the July 11 incident on Turtleback Road, according to New Canaan’s Animal Control officer.

At about 1:23 p.m., a pit bull ran off of its property and went after a pair of Swiss Mountain Dogs being leash-walked on the road.

Those two laid down in submission and the pit bull eventually was scared back onto its own property by another neighbor, said Officer Maryann Kleinschmitt.

Apparently, the invisible fence at the attacking dog’s house had been broken by a landscaper. The fence since was repaired, but it hadn’t been plugged back in, accordin got a police report.

The dog’s owner was ticketed for allowing a dog to roam and nuisance dog, Kleinschmitt said.
