the dogs must be crazy II

Brent Finnegan -- October 25th, 2006

What’s with the Olguin brothers and their dogs? Today the DNR and TV3 (as well as WDBJ in Roanoke) are reporting that the Olguin brothers’ pit bull(s) attacked someone for the second time in two months. In September the victim was Gloria Harold, coming to the rescue of Vicky Willis. This time it was Bucky Berry, who mows the lawn at the Salvation Army.

Alvaro Olguin, Renzo Olguin, and Jeffery Viers, the three guys who live at 182 Ashby Ave in north H’burg were charged with failure to maintain control of their animal. Judge Bowers made Alvero pay over $800 for Harold’s medical fees, and for not getting his unlicenced dogs vaccinated. I hope the judge in the Berry case takes greater measures to make sure this will not happen again. As someone who was nearly mauled by a pack of Dobermans when I was a kid, I have no sympathy for owners that can’t control their dogs. And I’m certainly not a fan of pit bulls.

On a related note, the city is asking us to clean up after our pets. According to folks at the city’s Department of Public Works, pet waste is the number one cause of pollutants in Black’s Run.
