Residents in La Paloma Neighborhood Want Issue of Stray Dogs Resolved
LA PALOMA – Residents in a Rio Grande Valley neighborhood want answers to a stray dog problem.
La Paloma resident Valeria Perez says the issue is common in her neighborhood.
"There are a lot of loose dogs,” she says. "A lot of people do call animal control."
KRGV’s Cecilia Gutierrez spoke with the Cameron County director for environmental health, Gustavo Olivarez, about the issue.
He says there are too many strays for the department to handle.
"We do have a lot of complaints that we receive on a daily basis from throughout the county,” says Olivarez.
He explains animal control officers must follow certain rules when responding to a loose dog complaint.
