Geneva County Dog Attack

A Slocomb man is undergoing rabies shots after being bitten by a stray dog over the weekend.

Local officials say it highlights Geneva County’s lack of any form of animal control.

On Sunday, Bobby Brown says he was riding his bike near his Slocomb home when two dogs suddenly charged him.

Brown says a small, black dog caused him to fall and then bit him on the ankle.

Since the dog has not been found, brown is in the process of receiving rabies shots.

Several attempts by private individuals to get an animal shelter built in Geneva County have been unsuccessful.

    I moved here in 1998. But I had lived here long before that and peoples total disregard for animals has gone on long befor that.Until we set fines and make the ones responsible pay nothing is going to change. I worked for Orange Co.Animal Control for awhile.We need some of there rules.I have an idea but nobody wants to listen.

    I agree there is a need for some kind of animal control in Geneva Co. I lived in Geneva Co for more than 8yrs and I had a total for 30 dogs dropped off on the dirt road I lived on. Some with young pups. It is a shame that people are so desperate they have to drop them off to defend for themselfs. I do wish they would have some kind of leash law as well. I couldn't go walking for fear of bring attacked by straying dogs.I did go for a walk once and was bitten on the ankle by a neighbors dog. I was pushing my daughter in a stroller. Something needs to be done.
