Release Rags from Impoundment
On August 16th, 2021 an incident occurred in Castle Pines, Colorado involving my dog Rags and one of my neighbors children. Rags is a Plott Hound and Pit Bull mix, in the past he has not shown any aggression towards others as documented from his previous owners, myself and all provided documentation from the shelter from which he was adopted. On August 16th, my mother was taking trash out of our side yard and didn’t realize that he was outside. When the gate opened he began running through the neighborhood and ended up at our neighborhood playground. There were three children at the playground, he approached extremely excited and scared the kids and their parent. According to a witness the children were kicking at him, and allegedly bit one of the children. When my mother arrived the mother of the children was sitting on his head, and the only alleged sustained injuries were on the child who was kicking. He is currently impounded (I personally believe because of his breed, you may form your own opinion) and I will not be able to see him until on or after October 1st. The Douglas County Animal Control do not allow visits, and I am being charged $450 per month for his care (beginning August ending October). I have filled a motion for a Probable Cause Hearing, so that I can prove he is not a menace to society, our neighborhood and provide circumstantial exhibits showing him getting out accidentally will never be a possibility in the future.
