FORT WASHINGTON, Old Fort Rd., 9600 block, April 10. Animal Management received a report of two Rottweilers and a pit bull chained near an uncovered well in a residential back yard, with no access to food or water. It was reported that no one had been at the residence for four days. An animal control officer impounded a 2-year-old male mixed Rottweiler. There were no other dogs seen on the property, but an officer picked up a 3-year-old mixed Rottweiler running loose on the 6100 block of Livingston Rd. It was determined that the dog was owned by the same person who owned the other Rottweiler, and that a prior cruelty investigation had been made regarding the older dog. A letter was sent advising the owner of required corrections to the property. The case was continuing.
UPPER MARLBORO, New Orchard Pl., 900 block, April 10. A resident called to have a stray dog picked up that was being kept on the resident's back deck. An animal control officer picked up the 10-year-old female, black and white Chihuahua and took it to the shelter. Its owner claimed it April 12 after paying $165 in fines and fees.
TEMPLE HILLS, Sheldon Ave., 4300 block, April 10. An animal control officer picked up a dog being held in a fenced back yard at a residence. The 5-year-old, black and white male mixed Labrador retriever had a silver choke chain with a blue nylon collar. It was being held as a stray.
