Conargo Shire is encouraging its ratepayers to take responsibility for their dogs.
The shire issued the request via a letter to ratepayers in response to a dog attack in March.
Council acting general manager Michael Todd said the two dogs were ‘‘intimidating workers’’ in the Blighty area and also attacked a neighbouring property’s dog.
The dogs were wandering around the Blighty area across two days before being impounded by the Deniliquin Council ranger after it was brought to Conargo Shire’s attention, Mr Todd said.
‘‘Council is trying to bring it to the owner’s attention that dogs have to be properly restrained so these things don’t happen,’’ he said.
‘‘We don’t have a lot of complaints but after this incident we’re more on the front foot.
‘‘The incident was out of the ordinary for the shire but council is trying to be proactive.’’
Mr Todd said the dogs involved in the incident were released back to the owner.
‘‘The owner received a pretty hefty fine,’’ he said.
‘‘Deniliquin Council assisted us with some dog control and impounding under a resource sharing agreement.’’
