What to do when a stray shows up in your yard

Lost, found dogs lead to magistrate case 


      What are you supposed to do when a stray dog or cat finds its way to your home? Feed it if it’s hungry? Yes. Offer it water? Yes. Call Pickens Animal Control? Yes.

A case of two lost then found Golden Retrievers wound up in magistrate court last Thursday and at the heart of the case was proper protocol when you find stray animals.

     According to Chief Magistrate Judge Allen Wigington, speaking in a later interview, if a stray animal wanders into your yard, you should always call animal control.
