CASCADE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WZZM) -- For more than six months, a large brown dog has wandered a neighborhood, and despite multiple attempts to capture the animal, it remains on the loose.
Joe Daineles, a supervisor at Kent Animal Control, says dozens of attempts have been made to try to capture the dog. They have tried making friends with the dog and leashing it. Live traps have been used with bait. They even called in extra help.
"We went out with the zoo veterinarian and their tranquilizers," explains Daineles, but the tranquilizer didn't work.
Animal control hasn't been the only group to try to catch the dog. Neighbors have brought in other dog rescue organizations, but none has been able to trap the dog. One resident explains, "I tried luring him in, but then the door was frozen shut, I jiggled it, and he ran away."
