Poll: Is HCC's Animal Control working for everyone

Liz from Glenview

The Neighbourly community has the chance to help our Deputy Mayor Geoff Taylor and Councillor Sarah Thomson look into how Animal Control (AC) functions in the community. Geoff and Sarah have been informed of our horror night/morning (29.30/12/2019) where Two dogs roamed and mauled Four fur babies. Both are pet owners and would have liked better results for the families of the cats.
Ibanez is still missed and familiar noises are still heard, his gravestone is under the trees, one of his many watch possies. He is only one of many animals, not just cats but rabbits, gineua pigs and even lambs that get attacked and no justice. All animals should have the right to be on their own property and not attacked. Animal control should collect evidence but they don't. If you have a suggestion on how improvements can be made then please go ahead only comments will be forwarded no names. If you think otherwise then let us know too.
I know where the dogs are. There is no gate and dog is visible from road. Animal Control have said no dogs live there. The dog that lives at this place barks at everything even if you stand across the road. The night Ibanez was attacked and killed there was no barking.

Roads are NOT stockcar tracks

Liz from Glenview

This afternoon at approx 3;45pm when my partner was on his way to work at Te Rapa Countdown a white SUV banged into MY car that my partner was driving. My partner did oblige with a horn toot and the 1 finger salute to the female driver who did NOT stop. You will know who you are because your SUV will have dark blue paint on it now where your new dent will be. I would like to let this female know she was lucky it was not me driving my car as I would have chased her down and she would not be happy. This year has been a shitty year so far with our cat mauled by dogs and now this lockdown with a severe income shortage. Now I have a dent in a car I can't afford to insure or afford to get fixed. If you can't drive decently or stop when you have done wrong then you should NOT be on the F#&%*# road.
