At first, there didn’t appear to be anything unusual about the call made to the animal control center: apparently, it was just another case of a persistently barking dog. However, the last thing the call turned out to be was routine. That’s because when an officer arrived at the scene, he was presented with a desperate creature clinging on for dear life.
That call came in on a very wet July day in Georgia, where a noisy dog was adding to the misery of the bad weather. The animal had been making a horrific din for hours without any sign of letting up, in fact. And it appeared that one individual in Stone Mountain had had enough of the racket, as they subsequently telephoned Gwinnett County Animal Control.
Consequently, Officer Hunter Barnett from the unit made his way to the complainant’s property on Hodges Way in the city. And once there, Barnett could certainly hear why he had been called out. Furthermore, the perturbed resident would explain that the barking sounded as though it was coming from some nearby woods. So, braving the wet weather, the officer duly went to investigate on foot.
