"The one who owned the dog had been put in the penitentiary on a drug related charge, and unfortunately I couldn't get him to take the dog with him to the penitentiary. We have been trying to catch the dog, we have been unsuccessful in that attempt. I contacted the dog owner's father, and the father I think is taking steps to apprehend the dog." Sheriff Jones said.
