Aggressive dog behaviour ‘totally acceptable’ to locals

La Pêche’s animal control officer says that aggressive dogs are becoming the norm in the Gatineau Hills and dog owners are “turning the other cheek,” to the growing problem.

Claude Lachaine of Anitek Animal Services says it’s “disturbing” how many calls he gets from residents who have either been attacked, chased, or aggressively stalked by off-leash dogs throughout the municipality. He said he has been dealing with aggressive dog calls at least once a week since the beginning of summer.
