Bowling Green, KY asked in Animal / Dog Law for Kentucky

Q: Neighbors pit bull is left to roam without a leash/ highly aggressive and attempted to attack my husband what can we do

This has been going on for YEARS when police called they’ve already put the dog back inside so the OHIO COUNTY POLICE DEPARTMENT DOES NOTHING. The pitbull is highly aggressive. It attempted to attack my husband last night in OUR BACK YARD where my small children play. I say attempted bc he had enough reaction time as it was running to grab a tool that was beside him by our building (crowbar) and hit the dog which only temporarily stopped the dog from charging him. That could have been my babies! I’m livid.
