The difficult issue of a dog attack

Dogs have long been the best friends of humans, and most pet owners could agree that their four-legged children live up to this sentiment. There are, however, differences between a docile pet and an animal that is completely unmanageable. These dogs -- whether their behavior is a result of abuse, poor training or other issue -- can become highly dangerous. Dog attacks and bites are scary situations, and some Montana residents have, unfortunately, experienced this trauma. 

Who is responsible for keeping sidewalks clear?

Snow is beautiful when it first falls, but it creates problems getting around Montana. Vehicles have a little help from snowplows that clear the streets, but pedestrians are not so lucky. Snow gets packed down and becomes icy if not cleared from the sidewalks. School-age children, dog-walkers, joggers and others all must use the sidewalks. Everyone is a pedestrian at some point when they get out of their vehicles and walk into work or a business, making icy sidewalks a universal hazard.
