  1. Isn’t the dog’s owner the same man who, on several occasions, shouted racial slurs at Village of Ridgewood sanitation workers? The Village refused to pick up his garbage for an extended period due to his behavior, right? Now, his dog bites a Ridgewood cop; not once, but twice? Is there a pattern here that requires further investigation? Does he own any guns? I’m glad I live nowhere near his place.

  2. Children and Utility workers need to be warned off with a large municipal sign on his property.fund raising and door to door school sales at night could be dangerous to children and utility municipal workers

  3. I was bitten on Oct 21 as I was leaving saddle river park by the Glen Rock Duck pond. A woman, with her Wheaton terrier were passing me on the bridge to the cu de sac and the dog lunged at me and took a chunk out of my arm. The woman initially volunteered to help, but then changed her mind and fled. Now if I don’t locate the dog and th owner I will have to undergo Rabies shots. Woman is in her thirties, slim with long brown hair and Eastern European accent..

  4. My god Arlene, this is terrible. Simply despicable that the person would bolt like that.
