Animals were running wild this week in Stamford, said Stamford Animal Care & Control Officer Stendhal Jean-Louis, both animals in control of the facility and not.
According to Jean-Louis, a dog being walked by a man in a wheelchair managed to get loose while the pair was out traveling down Cady Street.
Jean Louis said the dog, once loose, began chasing a passer-by down the street. Animal Control officers were called to the scene and helped corral the animal and return it to the owner, who resided on Birchwood Road.
Officers talked to owner but did not issue a summons, he said.
Animal Control officers received reports of another animal chasing innocent passers-by along a road in the East-side of Stamford.
According to animal control, a dog had been chasing people along Quintard Terrace.
Jean-Louis had no further information about the dog available, as officers were able to locate the owner and bring the dog home. There were no reports of that animal biting those it chased, he said.
A cat who has yet to be caught has been creating a ruckus just off Exit 9 off Interstate 95, Jean-Louis said.
The cat has already bitten at least one victim before running off into the brush again.
The cat was last seen along East Main Street right off the I-95 exit.
The city is currently facing a lawsuit from a person allegedly bitten by a dog being held at the animal shelter, Jean-Louis said.
He could release no additional information on the suit, just that the shelter has had to limit where it can walk their dogs in the surrounding area due to the lawsuit.
