The dog at the center of a controversy in a Rapid City neighborhood has been impounded.
According to Assistant City Attorney Allison Marsland, the dog at 108 Montana Street was removed by animal control on Tuesday.
The dog's owner, Ronald Cochran, was issued three tickets that included seven charges for violating a city code regarding a potentially dangerous animal ordinance.
Last month, mail delivery to the neighborhood stopped after the dog attacked a letter carrier. Residents have since been forced to go to the U.S. Post Office to retrieve their mail.
Even though the dog has been impounded, mail delivery service will not be restored.
U.S. Postal Service Spokesperson, Pete Nawacki says they will move forward will plans to install a cluster of mail boxes. It should be in place by Monday.
The dogs owner will be arraigned in court on Tuesday.
