Stranger tries to release pet from yard at Basin Pocket
A BASIN Pocket woman has warned dog owners to lock their gates after she claimed a stranger twice attempted to let her three-month-old wolfhound out of her front yard.
Leila Ottrey has had to padlock the family's front gate after bringing the puppy home about a month ago.
She said the latest incident happened on Saturday, when she discovered a man deliberately attempting to open her padlocked gate. She said the man left quickly after the family began yelling.
Ms Ottrey said four missing dog posters had been posted in her neighbourhood over the past month and three dogs had been found wandering the street on Saturday night.
