Aggressive dog

Aggressive dog

What can I do about a large, muscular, visciously growling dog that often rushes out onto the road at 14824 Barnes Rd, New Windsor, in Carroll Cty.  The dog's racing towards me and on to the road scares me.  Although I shout a loud, firm "Go Home!", it continues towards me.  I have to stop riding to protect myself and show the dog that I am standing my ground.

Re: Aggressive dog

Is there a law in Carroll County that dogs aren't allowed to run free?  If so, call the police and complain.  If there's no such law, you're going to have to ride with your pistol and holster, Annie Oakley!

Re: Aggressive dog

I agree with Gary.  And there is a law for Carroll county against letting your dog run outside your property.  The relevant portion is this:

A. The owner of a dog shall keep the dog under restraint or effective control at all times.
B. The owner of an animal shall prevent the animal, except a cat, from leaving the owner’s property
unattended or unrestrained.

The full code for animals can be  found here:

I would call the Carroll County animal control people. Their number is in the above PDF.  but here it is also:

410-848-4810 OR 410-875-5379

Re: Aggressive dog

Usually as in Balto/Harford Co the police won't do anything, you need to contact the Animal control people.

Re: Aggressive dog

Ed,   Thank you for you research.  You are very helpful.   

This Barnes Road is a wonderfully quiet, peaceful, country road except for this dang dog.  Many club cyclists may know this road from the longer route of the pancake rides.
