Pitbull keeps second Hannibal neighborhood from getting mail


HANNIBAL, Mo.  (WGEM) -- The saga of a pitbull in Hannibal continues.  The dog has been moved, but it's now creating problems in its new neighborhood.

You might remember the story of Moose, a dog considered such a threat the post office refused to deliver mail to people in the same neighborhood on College Street.  Moose is now in the hands of a family member on New London Road.  And now those neighbors aren't getting their mail.

The city has given the dog's new caretaker ten days to put up a fence and get insurance before mail service will resume.  Neighbors say they would prefer to see the dog out of their neighborhood.

Judy Talone says, "I think it would be fair to give the dog a country home. So he can be out and if he's running outside trying to get out of the door, he wants out."

Hannibal police say the dog will be seized if there are any violations.
