A Yellow Grass woman is fighting to keep her dog from getting kicked out of town.
Brandy Gosse’s dog Max bit a kid back on June 29th.
A few weeks after the incident, she received a letter from the town office.
“They said that the dog had been bit without provocation and that they had deemed him dangerous and that he had to be removed from Yellow Grass,” she recalled.
However, Gosse said Max was provoked and the town needs to hear her out on that.
“They need to come, they need to do an investigation, they need to collect a statement from me,” she said. “You can’t sit there and say he said, she said situation and only gather information to from one side.”
The town recently made amendments to a bylaw, discouraging residents from owning certain breeds, which could explain the efforts to remove Max.
To Gosse, that communicates to her that the town doesn’t want her to own a dog.
“We can’t have a dog that is properly tied onto the property, he can’t get out of the property, stating basically, it doesn’t matter what you do that’s in the right, in the eyes of the town, it’s wrong.”
620 CKRM has made attempts to contact the mayor of Yellow Grass and the town office for a response on this matter, and at this time, they have yet to provide us with one.
