Just before 3pm Monday afternoon a woman parked on Oakwood Drive called police that a dog had jumped in her car, wouldn’t get out and was trying to bite her. She got out of her car and waited for Fairfield’s Animal Control Officer to remove the dog. If you notice the cars are similar in style and color so the dog Maggie might have thought it was her owner’s car the animal control officer told me. The dog’s owner who lives on Oakwood Drive said he was trying to leash the dog when she ran off to chase a squirrel. The owner has a bad hip so chasing the dog was pretty much out of the question. When warned by the animal control officer not to let the dog get away in the future he said not to worry, the dog has used up all his past goodwill. The dog was reunited with her owner and no charges were filed. All parties left the scene before I could any names or further information.
