Today my dog was threatened and bit by a pit bull on a leash. Luckily, my dog is okay. I just want to warn
everyone that it's not just unleased dogs that can hurt you or your animal.
King County Animal Control field officers respond to the following requests:
trespassing cats and dogs
stray dogs and cats, pick up.

CALL (206) 296-7387
To file a complaint or request a service call:
Emergencies - injured animals, vicious dog, loose livestock - press 22
Other emergencies - press 23

Side note: I find it amazing how many loose pit bulls roam our neighborhood. What do you do when one of these attacks your pets on your own property? Calling Animal Control seems to be the "too late" response that rewards careless pit bull owners.
