Overrun with dogs and with nowhere left to turn for help, a Rock Hill community resident made a plea to the Alcorn County Board of Supervisors this week.

Sherry Rogers of County Road 156 told the board it has been an ongoing situation over the last couple of years, and she said there are 47 dogs in the vicinity. She described them as Great Pyrenees and a mix of Great Pyrenees and German shepherd.

One can lay the blame squarely on thw county board,who has the authority to create an ordinance against allowing dogs to run loose AND to mandate thhe animal control officer (s) to capture these semi wild animals...if a child gets attacked by one,look for an extremely large lawsuit against the county because of their INaction.And then the taxpayers can suffer for having to pay.Perhaps if the county supervisors would quit lining their OWN pockets,and lining their OWN driveways with county gravel,they can find the wisdom and time to think of the resident TAXPAYERS for once instead of their own little world of power and personal greed. ULTIMATELY tho,the blame lays on the voters who keep re-electing these same old board members.
