Sarah Leamy started this petition to AC Supervisor/Officer Lewis Santa Fe County Animal Control and

Community Petition for Action against Frank Ybarra (b.1955) of 123 Wild Dog Road, Madrid, NM87010.

The Santa Fe County Sheriff’s department (and therefore Animal Control) states that their mission is to 1. “protect and serve the people of Santa Fe County,” 2. is “dedicated to enhancing the public safety and welfare of the communities we serve” and 3. to uphold and enforce the law.
On August 23rd 2019, at approx. 6pm, Frank Ybarra’s dogs broke through Sarah Leamy’s fence/gate onto her property, attacked and killed her dog, Rosie. (Witness statements are available.) This isn’t some random one-off dog fight. This is the predictable end result of the pattern of a repeat offender, one who knowingly owns and raises numerous packs of dangerous dogs. Each pack becomes vicious, and are let run at large, are unfixed, no rabies, no licenses, no restraints, and as such threaten the community. Ybarra’s dogs have attacked humans, horses, and dogs. They have killed two grown dogs and a puppy.
The common denominator is the owner and not the specific dogs.
Ybarra (1955) lives at 123 Wild Dog Road, Madrid. Leamy (1967) lives at 110 Wild Dog.
For the last ten years, Ybarra has raised such dangerous dogs that have created this ongoing unsafe environment. His dogs have repeatedly attacked the following neighbors and tenants, including Cundiff, Skorheim, Polly, McIntosh, Reed, Richard and Sandy Duval, Mo McGarry, Sarah Graham, and from 2008-2019 Sarah Leamy,
 
On August 23 2019, Ybarra’s dogs attacked both humans and dogs at 121 Wild Dog Road and then killed Rosie, a dog on her own property (#110)

·     Given that Ybarra is a repeat offender with a proven record of owning vicious dogs, who have attacked humans, horses and dogs in the area
·     Given that when taken to court, he has removed some of the pack only to then breed more, and within two years creates another pack of aggressive running at large dangerous dogs
·      Given that according to the Dangerous Dog Act, “An owner of a dangerous or potentially dangerous dog that causes serious injury or death to a domestic animal, without provocation, is guilty of a fourth degree felony.”
 
Given that there are court records, photos, letters, and 9 yrs of evidence, and that the Prosecution pursuant to this section of the act requires a showing that:
(1) an owner knew of the propensity of a dog to inflict serious injury; or
(2) the dog had previously been found by a court to be a dangerous or potentially dangerous dog.

Given that another dog, Lulu, was killed on her own property at #121 three years ago and that no prosecution or conviction was made.

 Fines have not stopped the ongoing threat. Removing the dogs has not helped, they are replaced within months. What is the solution? 
 
We ask for a court ordered and enforcable injunction against any more dogs living at 123 Wild Dog Road, Madrid, NM.
