Rosemary Atherton of England saw a stray dog in her backyard, so she called the city to come take it to the pound.  Five days later, she received a form in the mail asking her to describe the alleged stray, including what street she believed it to live on, what time of day she was most likely to see it, and which category best described the mutt:  “lost,” “neglected,” “living wild,” “on it’s way somewhere,” or “having a bit of fun”. A dog catcher finally showed up- 13 days later - but by then the dog was long gone.   

- The city borrowed this idea from the Obama Health Care Plan.  

- In fact they call it “O-bark-a-care”.
