A dog's day in Town Hall

Posted by Ralph Ranalli March 3, 2007 09:19 AM


A Berlin woman who claims her dog was attacked several times by a neighbor’s pet will share her story during a hearing Monday night before the Board of Selectmen.

MaryAnn Aijala of Barnes Hill Road alleges that Max, a dog owned by William and Noella Dubois of Richard Drive, has attacked her dog several times over the past eight years. Most recently, Aijala claims Max attacked her dog, Boots, in her yard in November and caused a gaping wound in his shoulder that required emergency care. Boots has since been put down as a result of an unrelated illness.

The Board will hear testimony from both Aijala and the Dubois at 7:30 p.m. in the selectmen’s hearing room in the town offices on Linden Street. Selectmen could decide to take no action or issue recommendations that could include the restraining the Dubois' dog or ordering it removed from town.
