Trail over... dog barking

Posted: Updated:
HOUSTON (FOX 26) -

Myrna Sanders says because she's never had kids she treats her three dogs just like her own children.

Sanders says, "there's shootings and terrorists attacks everyday and League City is targeting me."

Sanderson says she feels like a target because of her dogs. The League City resident first said she received a warning from Animal Control for her dogs barking earlier this year...That's after someone in her community complained. It's a community where she says 7 out of her 8 neighbors have dogs but she's the only one targeted.

"So the animal control officer comes out for League City and she counsels me on citronella collar or shock collar and all of these things to get your dog to not bark and I'm going it's 3 pm in the afternoon what is the problem," says Sanders.

Sanderson says she thought it was over after reluctantly buying her dogs shock collars...But then she received this notice in the mail a few weeks later. The state of Texas on behalf of League City was suing her and taking her to trial for unreasonable unnecessary noise. Remember Sanders says this wasn't a barking complaint from 3 in the morning but 3 in the afternoon.

She says, "it's costing me attorney's fees, $150 for each collar and then the batteries I have to keep buying. It's cost me pain and anguish because I have to worry about my dogs. Anytime I'm out here they just bark once I'm scared I'm like shhhh."

The manager of the League City Animal Shelter said she would try and talk with FOX 26 in general about the case once she received approval from the city. We waited for several hours and never heard back from the city or the shelter about the cases against Sanders.

A case the animal lover says she feels is all about the mighty dollar.

"I personally think they just want money," says Sanders
