PETITION FOR COMMUNITY SAFETY & SECURITY

This PETITION is to 'STOP DOGS RUNNING ‘UNSUPERVISED OFF LEASH’, by supporting our law enforcement agencies and elected officials in carrying out their sworn duty to implement the law; specifically the Town of Claverack Zoning Leash Laws.

My name is Danyell C Ray. I am a professional chef/caterer and my property is Georgia Ray's Kitchen at 9 Ginsberg Lane, Hudson, NY, off Route 66, where I also maintain my residence. Here are the Facts:

FIRST: The same TWO DOGS have repeatedly come onto my property and TWICE, Savagely Killed My Two Cats. The first was on July 21, 2018 and the second on December 25, 2018, Christmas night.

SECOND: They also returned August 4, 2018, and I chased them away, as they were hunting in my hedgerows, meaning they instinctively return to my property, resulting in a clear and present danger to me and my companion animals, as evidenced in the attacks.

THIRD: When I confronted the owner, he told me his dog, intentionally “kills all cats and small animals” and the dogs "often slip off their leashes".  He has also commented that it was, “just another cat”, proving there is no consideration to be had from these owners, who have done nothing to remedy the situation.

FORTH: These attacks were witnessed by me and my neighbors and reported to the Columbia County Sheriff Dept. and the Claverack Game Warden, who have EXTENSIVE BACKGROUND ON THESE ANIMALS; running across Rte. 66; found at Dutch Village Mobile Home Park; and down Fish and Game Rd; jeopardizing motorists, themselves, and possibly causing accidents.

FINALLY: I am a staunch animal advocate, but am concerned about the safety of our neighbors, their children and pets, playing on THEIR own properties, where I feel they too may be at risk. These laws exist to protect us all from violations of just such a nature.

Therefore, I'm asking for your signature of SUPPORT, to send a ‘UNIFIED MESSAGE’ for our town judicial body, to please take these offenses seriously, and prosecute these dog owners according to the law now, before there are other innocent victims.

Thank you,

Danyell C Ray
