[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]A D.C. man is being dogged by regulations.
When Roger Horowitz lost his dog Ollie, a rescue dog that had been shot in Georgia, he filed a missing dog report, and said he was encouraged by police to post fliers to help find him.[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]Thousands of fliers were put up with the help of volunteers, but according to D.C. regulations, no more than three copies of a flier can be posted on one side of a street within one block.
Horowitz received a call from the police, telling him to take the fliers down or face a $750,000 fine. Horowitz said:
“So he told me that regardless if we put up the fliers, or if other people put them up, we had made the original flier that had my phone number, and that we could get fined up to 750,000,”
The rules say that violations can result in a $300 fine. It’s unclear if that’s per sign.
Roger Horowitz, along with his wife Annemarie, started using social media to help find their dog with the hashtag #FindOllie.
They found Ollie on Thursday morning but are still asking for help to take down the signs.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
