10:53 a.m. A big black dog has been routinely chasing turkeys in an angry neighbor’s yard.

11:19 a.m. Some of the many Ron Paul signs that have been posted throughout the valley needed to be taken down. It is inappropriate to post signs in the right of way of an intersection.

1:57 p.m. Someone called in when a really big cat was unresponsive. It was taken to the animal shelter.

2:39 p.m. A person saw a car parked behind a gate on U.S. Highway 35 and thought maybe it was stolen, so they called the Sheriff’s Department. It wasn’t stolen.

3:11 p.m. Someone called in when they saw several people drinking beer near a car. Since drinking beer is not illegal the drinkers were not cited.

4:43 p.m. Someone called in about a fire in Whitefish. It turned out to be a barbecue.

5:36 p.m. An intoxicated female dressed head to toe in tie-dye was seen yelling obscenities at people.

10:40 p.m. Parents called in when their 15-year-old daughter was making death threats.

The departments responded to 156 calls for service.
