Law Roundup: Caller doesn’t think cow will come home

| July 16, 2021 12:00 AM

A cow got loose on Helena Flats Road. The cow wound up in a yard, but someone thought it looked like it wouldn’t stay there for long. An officer from the Flathead County Sheriff’s Office drove up and down the road, but they couldn’t find the bovine.

A woman said a pushy pitbull repeatedly barked at her and her children until they backed up into their house. An officer investigated in the neighborhood but could only find a dog that did “not look like a pitbull.”

A woman who lives on Batavia Lane in Kalispell said she saw multiple law enforcement vehicles at her neighbor’s house early in the morning. She called law enforcement because she said she was “curious what was going on and if everything [was] OK.”

A grandmother called to give information about her grandson.

A Whitefish resident said trucks going by were “disturbing the peace.”

A woman was reported after she showed up at a location in Columbia Falls, took her belongings and “trashed the location” on her way out.

A caller in Kalispell said a helicopter was circling his house. He wanted to know if he should have been worried.

A driver said he couldn’t get his vehicle to start on his way home from Glacier National Park.

Someone called from aboard a paddleboard on the Whitefish River to report a fire on the side of the river. He said he and fellow paddleboarders were “working on splashing it with water.” The Whitefish Fire Department responded and the fire was extinguished.

A man said his neighbors’ trash blew all over his yard. The neighbors said their lawnmower ran over a phone book. They proceeded to pick up the trash.
