Animal at Large, Chillicothe Road – A Russell woman and a Hunting Valley woman were cited for having their dogs off-leash at West Geauga Commons Aug. 4.

The responding officer said the two women had been warned previously for walking their dogs in the park without leashes.
The lost dog, named Fred, is wearing a brow collar attached to a red leash. The dog’s owner searched for it all afternoon without finding it and is very upset, according to police.
