An increase in animal complaints has promoted the Gouldsboro Police Department to take action. They require the town to have a certified Animal Control Officer. These officers invest animal cruelty incidents, verify dog licenses, and follow proper dog bite procedure.
Dog bite cases have been reported to the department this year. Officers handle a dog bite complaint by following a procedure provided by the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). Police says owners need to provide evidence that their animal was vaccinated for rabies. This includes cats too!
