Dog bites a cause for con­cern

The Western Star - - NEWS -

ERGON En­ergy work­ers and me­ter read­ers will no longer en­ter yards with un­re­strained dogs, due to statewide safety con­cerns.

Over an 18 month pe­riod, Ergon and En­ergex re­ported 71 in­juries from dog bites and 199 close calls.

“The safety of our em­ploy­ees has to come first and that means if there is a dog on a prop­erty that isn’t re­strained – we won’t go in to do work of any kind,” area man­ager Wayne Al­der­man said
