The following are excerpts from reports generated by the Texas County Sheriff’s Department:
•A deputy responded at about 9:30 a.m. Dec. 31 to a report of a dog not being cared for at a house at Highway 32 and Highway N at Licking.
The officer reported observing a large brown dog that did not appear to be malnourished and had water to drink. The officer also saw three black puppies running loose that appeared healthy. The report was deemed unfounded.
•A deputy was dispatched to the Texas County Memorial Hospital emergency room on Dec. 31 regarding a report of a dog bite.

•A 58-year-old Bucyrus man reported on Jan. 13 that family members who live out of state had threatened to harm other family members at a memorial service in Texas County. Nothing came of the report.
•A 63-year-old Cabool woman reported on Jan. 14 that neighbors’ dogs had killed her small dog. An investigating officer went to the woman’s Gravelpoint Road residence and she said she didn’t want to pursue charges, but just wanted the incident on record.
The officer spoke with the neighbors and advised them to maintain control of their animals.
•A 63-year-old Cabool man reported on Jan. 14 that his stepdaughter would not leave his Bado Road residence. Before an investigating officer arrived at the scene, a report was received she was leaving and law enforcement wasn’t needed.
