Recommended Procedures & Contacts
Information is based on conversation between Kiest Part Community Group (KPCG) President, Judy Brooks, and Dallas Animal Services (DAS) Manager, Jody Jones on 19 Feb 2013.
The area in and around Kiest Park has been "posted" as a "hot spot" by DAS! The boundaries include Illinois Ave. (North), Kiest Blvd. (South), Hampton Rd. (West) and S. Polk St. (East).
Several serious incidents with three stray "pit bull" mixed-breed dogs occurred around the Kiest Park area neighborhood in February, Resulting actions were placement of two traps, one in the 2900 block of E. Perryton (just north of Saner) and one in Kiest Park on the Rugged Drive side.
Last word was that two pit bull mixes were trapped. One was a tan one, possibly one of the 3 that had attacked cars. Another brindle colored one was caught in the other of the 2 traps. However, the brindle mix was not part of the original pack of 3 that were causing so much trouble. DAS was responsible for checking the traps and getting the 2 that were caught. DAS is scheduled to "patrol" the Kiest Park area quite often due to the "hot spot" designation.
The "311" Intake dispatches animal issues/violations to DAS, which are completely separate from other "311" calls in general.
