Loose Dogs Causing Problems In Audubon

Posted: Updated:
"Nobody wants their kids to play outside and that's not fair. I'm leaving tomorrow, I got a place to and I jumped on it, I'm out of here just for the main fact that I want my kids to have freedom," says Angela Neisen-Baity.  

People living in an Audubon trailer court are tired of living in fear of dogs that have been running lose and biting adults and children.
Several people called our whistle blower hotline after a little girl was bit by a dog on Monday and they want to see the town take action.
Dogs are a normal sight in the Audubon Trailer Court but many residents say multiple dogs are running loose and now even breaking people's skin.

"It is getting worse now because we have dogs that are biting people, before it was dogs that are running loose and creating a nuisance," says resident Patty Stone.

This is not the first time that nuisance dogs have been a issue at the park, two years ago Angela Neisen-Baity says she was picking he daughter up at a neighbors house when she was attacked.

"I got bit from behind by a fawn one and the brendal ones were in the front and fawn in the back and they basically just packed attacked," says resident Angela Neisen-Baity

On May 26, 2014 different dogs owned by the same people lunged and bit a little girl. Residents like Michelle Christianson have taken multiple steps to protect her family and dog.

"About the last 2 years now I have kept my kids indoor unless they go to the school park to play because I am so scared if something was to happen with all these dogs running around," says resident Michelle Christainson.  

Christianson says her daughter was chased home by the same dogs the same week. Many resident say they are also afraid to keep their pets outside.

"I can not put my dog out on a chain, I have had to confine my dogs to six foot high walls," says Neisen-Baity.

The City of Audubon has multiple pet ordinances, leash laws and dogs that bite must be quartined afterwards.

"if I can follow the rules if I can keep my dog on a chain and supervised why should everyone else allow their dogs to run around."

The landlord of the park did not want to appear on camera but claims he is taking steps to alleviate this issue and that the trailer court has a two dog limit.
Audubon police say they've issued citations in the past and are continuing to investigate complaints. Police also say to call them or the Becker County Sheriff department to file additional complaints.
