Help Needed From Folks At The Dog Beach Saturday
Frida is a little chocolate Chihuahua who visited Montrose (Mondog) Dog Beach, for the first time, around noon on Saturday, June 5. Frida was down on the sand near her pregnant owner and a visiting relative when a Husky/ Malamute ran several yards from the water, swooped down, and ran off with Frida dangling from its mouth. Approximately 50 horrified dog owners were there and tried to stop the large dog, who thought the chase was great fun. But, dog owners and lifeguards could not stop the Husky/ Malamute from biting through Frida’s abdomen and breaking her neck. Frida died before reaching the vet.
Animal Control Bite Division would like to speak to the Husky/ Malamute’s owner. Anyone with information to share can call Animal Control Bite Officer Porter at 312-747-1410 or the Animal Bite Supervisor at 312-747-1412 or 1413. Refer to incident number IR #10-00798427. The incident location was at Montrose Dog Beach, 4700 N “Wilson-Lawrence”, i.e. the circular drive east of North Simmonds Drive, between Wilson and Lawrence." If you wish to remain anonymous, you can send info to Uptown Update and we will pass it along to Animal Control without your contact information (unless you specifically ask us to).
