SHERIFF HANAK WARNS OF DANGERS OF LOOSE LIFESTOCK
Washington County Sheriff Otto Hanak is continuing his crusade to get loose livestock off the rural county roads. He told today’s (Tuesday’s) meeting of the Washington County Commissioners that woman was killed after she struck a horse on highway 105 at about five in the morning. The Sheriff told the Commissioners that he his deputies had just secured those horses at about 9 the previous night. He says his deputies handle about a thousand cases of loose livestock a year and it takes up too much time.
The Sheriff told the Commissioners that there are very few repeat offenders and it is a problem for everyone in the county.
