Mapleton Police Reminding Residents of Pet Ordinances After Seeing a Rise in Animal Complaints

A recent uptick in animal complaints in 2021 is causing the Mapleton Police Department to remind residents about the City’s ordinances relating to pets.


The Police Department says it averaged 65 animal complaints per year over the last six years but they have already received 51 animal complaints this year.


The Department estimates that over 100 complaints will be made by the end of the year.


One of the things the Police are noticing is an increase in the number of confrontations between dogs, as well as complaints involving aggressive dogs.
