Neighbours barking dog getting on your nerves? Don’t call police
Dog Medo barks in a backyard in Peroj, Croatia, Monday, Feb. 9, 2015. A fed up neighbor from a northern Croatian Adriatic village has won a temporary court order that says Medo must stop barking at night. If not, owner Anton Simunovic must pay some Ä2,800 ($3,160). The 3-year-old mutt, now confined in a barn between 8 p.m. and 8 a.m. instead of being allowed to roam, is the only dog in Croatia slapped with a no-barking injunction. (AP Photo/Darko Bandic)
LONDON, ONT -- While they may be our best friends, and provide so many different services, it can’t be denied that a barking dog can sometimes get a little annoying.
However, despite the yappy pooch getting on your nerves Norfolk County OPP are reminding residents that this is not a reason to call police.
"I am urging all residents to utilize the Barking Dog Evidence Package that is available on-line to everyone in Norfolk County. This is an easy and effective way to make an official complaint regarding a barking dog in your community,” said Inspector Joseph Varga.
The OPP responds to several barking dog complaints every year, but this package will enable residents to make a complaint from the comforts of their home.
