Animal Control Raids West side Neighborhood

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI -

Animal Control officers along with Corpus Christi Police were out in force today in the 700 block of Mohawk.  They were out trying to catch stray dogs that have become a nuisance in this Westside neighborhood.

Area residents like Gloria Cuervo have been dealing with stray dog issues for years and are happy to see the city crews.

"Right here I tried walking in my own yard and he was growling at me," said Cuervo, a resident on Mohawk speaking of one encounter with a stray.

Many of the dogs would go under homes to avoid capture.  There's even home surveillance footage of dogs fighting in the neighborhood at night, packs of dogs attacking one dog was shown to Action 10 News by a resident.

"You can't sleep at night, they are fighting," said Joe Flores.

More surveillance footage shows stray dogs chasing a cat, it's a good thing the kitty got away.

"When they get in packs they become aggressive, we're out here we're gonna address the situation and try to restore order back to the neighborhood," said Captain Patrick McMenamy, CCPD head of Animal Control.

Animal Control set traps and caught several this time. Two years ago Animal Control was here doing the same thing.

"If the animals get out they're gonna roam the streets, they're gonna breed more puppies, it's a continuous cycle," said Capt. McMenamy.

Six citations were given out today to dog owners in violation and 8 dogs were seized.
