I will tell you,there is NO leash law in Ky or so the Police Department tells me.As far as going off half cocked and shooting someones dog/dogs as someone mentioned,well you are just asking for jail time for it IS against the law to shoot a dog in ANY way,shape,or form.It IS called animal cruelty and it IS enforced...I agree with whomever made the comment about yelling at the people whom do NOT get their animals spayed and neutered...I am a dog owner of 4 house dogs,1 being big and 3 being small.I have someone whom lives down the street that tries to shoot the animals that enter his yard but this is how that goes,They come to MY house and befriend MY animals and then when MY animals go to their house they are NOT expected to go over in their yard to greet these people.I am sorry,yes some dogs ARE smart but not that smart...The police WAS called on him for shooting at dogs and they DID come out,he was warned and then 2 days later given a citation and the dog catcher came and picked this animal up...I am not from Johnson County but have been here for several years,Is this the same dog catcher that was around 10 years ago??I do NOT believe in killing the animals,it is the irresponsible pet owners that are to blame!!!!!

I moved to Johnson County a year ago and my neighbor has 2 dogs that he lets run wild. They use the bathroom in my yard, bark at every vehicle they see, and get into my garbage at night. It doesn't shock me that this man allows this considering he throws his trash in the creek or burns it instead of having it picked up, and instead of having a septic tank has a drain pipe running into the same creek that ends up with most of his garbage.
I have 2 dogs myself but they are indoor animals and I pick up after them when I walk them and I have to clean up his dogs messes too. My dogs don't go outside without being on a leash and he has never controlled his dogs in any way, they often run onto my porch to "mark" it, if I'm lucky I can catch them and run them off. When the neighbors dogs go crazy at cars it sets my dogs into a barking fit as well which is a real pain when it happens in the middle of the night.
I fixed the garbage situation with a new can they can't get into (which I shouldn't have had to do) but I can't fence in my yard because his house is only a few yards away and he has to drive through my yard in order to get there.
I know Johnson County doesn't have an animal shelter/control and I'm at my wits end trying to figure out what to do. Is there any legal avenue I could take to get my neighbor to take some control of and responsibility for his dogs?![/Catch the dogs and relocate them to another neighborhood. Better yet, a shelter!]

All you have to do is call the state garage and tell them you have a dog to be picked up tell them someone droped it off and they will come pick it up I did and they were here in less then an hour report the garbage and sewage in the creek to the Health Dept. and Paintsville Sani. Dept. he will be fined and have pay for his own garbage removel that's the law if you don't get help from all that call the news paper, they love a good story on people that don't pay their bills.

You people are sick and worthless. Did it ever occur to any of you that dogs and cats need food,water,shelter and love. Were you not reared with any compassion or empathy. Take in a stray and you will have a loyal,humble friend for life.

It is then taken to Greenup county and gassed to death. If you can call and cause this then you are not human.

Its really sad that people are telling you to kill 2 innocent dogs who have never been trained to KNOW BETTER. The dog warden will pick the dogs up, take them to greenup and they will euthanised. There have been animals in the paper recently and it seems like Johnson County just started noticing theres more income to be made by charging abusive and neglectful owners. I would call the police department and start filing compalints. If you see the guy being abusive or neglectful, thats awful but document it immediately. Not taking careof them and letting them chase cars is also dangerous. You can file a complaint that people have to drive recklessly to avoid the guys dog. Thay may get your case into prioriy. Hopefully.
kill them all

If your dogs get out they need to be shot! Evidently the owners don't care about them so why should we. Keep your dogs on your property and this will be of no concern to you. If you let them run loose then it is your own fault, no one elses.

Well, not all of us are rich and can afford to feed tons of stray animals or other people's pets...especially when we have our own. I work and can only afford to feed my family and my pets not every stray in Johnson County. Two of my four pets were strays, thanks very much! There's no need to call anyone sick and worthless. Save that for the people who just let their pets go and become strays because the real owners won't care for them.

In the past year I've called the animal control guy about 17 times for dogs dumped in my area. There is no way on this earth I can properly care for 17 dogs knowing full well more will be dumped here. Sorry if they end up put down but instead of chastising me, chastise the folks that wanted the animals so badly to begin with and then decided it was to much trouble. At least I didn't put them in a situation where they could have been run over or starve to death.

I live on Maple Tree DR. on new 460. There are 5 big dog's that come here to my house to shit in my yard. I can't leave my shoes on my own porch for the stray dogs carrying them off. I have taken all of this I'm going to. If there are any animal's rights believers reading this , you can come catch them anytime you want, but time is running out. Starting today , I start killing every one that comes near my property.

You qualify for sick and worthless if you cause the death of an animal. What little bit a dog would eat amounts to little and a bowl of water MIGHT be a nickel.Tell your sob story to someone who believes it.

Oh, I put out spare water but my family and I can not afford to put out food for other animals. My babies have to eat, too. If someone can not afford to feed the stray animals in this town it makes them sick and worthless? After all, that does cause a lot of deaths of strays. I guess that means you are sick and worthless along with the rest of us, Margaret. Unless you own and run an animal shelter out of your own pocket on your own dime, then your comment applies to you as well. I don't purposely kill any animal. Here's a thought: how about you go and buy all the food it would take to feed the 9 million stray cats running around where I live or the 7 dogs? You buy all that food for them to eat every single day and put it out for them and feed a family? I don't know about you but I work for a living and at minimum wage I barely make enough to pay a couple of the bills in my home. Thank God my husband works as well. After taxes and supporting those who get to lay on their hind ends and draw a check, we make enough to pay our bills, feed our pets and selves, and buy our necessities. That's it. We have no extra money to have fun with or even go to a movie once in a few months. If you want to check out my porch once in awhile you will see tons of cats that aren't mine laying all over it because that's where the water is and that's where the scraps from our dinner plates go. The next time you call someone sick or worthless you damn sure better look at your own actions first and know what the hell you're talking about beforehand.
well what about cats

I am sorry you have such a rough time. I am sorry I called you sick and worthless. I do feed a bunch of stray dogs-have no cats. The dogs eat up a fortune. People who turn these dogs loose should either have the money to spay or neuter or don't get an animal. My apologies.
well

anti freeze works the best! But i think its against the law to kill cats think you can go to jail!! So in short you have to clean your shoes or take them over to your neighbor and ask if she or he would clean them!! If not gather all the shit you find and put it on there door step i dont know but that might be against the law to. so in short you cant do anything!! JUST BECOME A CAT LOVER!!
