Mom fears for children’s safety after dog attack

DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) - Jessica Frost says she's fed up with two dogs that have been terrorizing her and her family for the past year at their home on Harvey Drive.

Frost took pictures of the dogs on her cell phone. Last month, a pit bull and a Rottweiler (you can see its backside in the picture) broke through her screen door to her deck and killed her pet rabbit.

"We had the rabbit here on the deck and I guess they saw the rabbit in here so they barged through the door and busted the whole door down. The wood and everything is just broke," said Frost.

On Monday, Frost says the dogs came back and attacked her pet schnauzer named Princess. Princess was able to escape with no harm done.

"I've called animal control 10 to 12 times. I've called the police at least twice and they're not getting rid of the animals," said Frost.

Now, Frost fears the worst will happen, not only to her two children, but neighborhood children as well.

"There's a lot of children on this street. There's a preschool on this street and I fear either they will attack one of my kids or somebody else's kids," said Frost.

Frost hopes these two dogs are caught soon, so she and her family can get back to their normal lives.

"My husband told me not to even let the kids come out. Wait until we find out if the dogs are captured or somehow where they can't get out," said Frost.

We tried to get in contact with animal control officer for Dougherty County but our phone calls were not returned in time.

Dougherty County Police Chief Don Cheek told us yesterday that calls to animal control were up 37 percent in 2011 compared to 2010.

If you spot the dogs in the Harvey Drive area, please call Dougherty County Animal Control at 431-2132.
