Vicious dog incident prompts OSMOND — Osmond residents ordinance by city council

OSMOND — At the Monday, Nov. 13, meeting of Osmond City Council, Greg Schultze voiced his concern regarding a recent incident in which a dog owned by the Curtis Maertins family had gotten loose from inside the Maertins home and attacked the Schultze’s dog, resulting in its death.

Schultze stated that his daughter, Maggie, had been walking the dog and stopped to get the mail and while she had stopped, one of the Maertins children was sitting on the porch at their home and coaxed the small dog to come up on the porch to pet it. When another of the children came out of the house, the unleashed Maertins dog followed and immediately attacked the smaller dog.

According to statements by Police Chief Gary Umberger, it was deemed the Maertins dog is vicious and, once a dog is deemed vicious, action should be taken to remove it from city limits. Umberger stated that law enforcement says that a vicious dog must be prohibited from city limits within five to seven days after being deemed vicious.
