Doggone appeal dismissed

A Peabody woman who appealed a Jan. 12 municipal court ruling that she pay a $265 fine for having two dogs at large has reached an agreement with the city and dismissed her appeal.

Terri Tucker, who filed her appeal Jan. 19, dismissed it July 13, the same day it was scheduled to be heard in district court.

When Peabody municipal judge Brad Jantz ruled against Tucker, he ordered her to pick up her dogs from Countryaid Vet Services at Whitewater, where police chief Bruce Burke had boarded them after he had to chase them down for a third time in 2021. He did not bring them back to Peabody because of repeated citations for allowing her dogs to run at large.

Burke said the dogs were not returned to Peabody.

“Those dogs were released out of the city and adopted to appropriate homes,” Burke said.
