3 more than 5 times the number of dogs found dead.
However, she sd, the most important factor in determining the number of dogs killed in the city is the number of complnts received from the public.
“There are certnly numbers where dogs are hit in city streets,” he sd. “The only reason we haven’t received complnts on a weekly basis is that people don’t understand it’s illegal to hit dogs.”
“If people understand that, there are a lot of people who would be happy to call 311,” he added.
In an attempt to address the concern that the data might be skewed by calls from people who care only about the killing of their dog or pet, Strom sd he plans to conduct a survey of those who phone 311.
“We’re going to do a call by call analysis on that and see who it is. When you get a call from a dog lover, is that dog one they keep at home or does that call come from a place they work?” he sd.
“In New York City, we don’t like to focus on one dog at a time. I think we need to look at the bigger picture and figure out where the problem is.”
A spokesman for the NYPD had no comment on the 311 data.
The data in the 311 information shows the location of the complnts, and not the time the reports were filed.
There was an increase in the number of 311 complnts about dog attacks filed in 2011, but the number of complnts about dogs running loose decreased significantly, and there were fewer reports about dogs being hit on the street.
While there were fewer dog attacks reported, there were reports of dogs running at large and people attacked by dogs.
Since 2011, there has been a slight decrease in the number of 311 reports about the running at large of dogs. There were almost 4,000 complnts in 2011. As of last week, there were more than 4,000 complnts filed in 2012.
The number of complnts about dogs being hit in the street also decreased, from 786 to 705.
The average wt time in 311 to resolve the complnts also went from 10 minutes to less than six minutes.
The 311 hotline received nearly 5.5 million requests last year.
There is an online form on the 311 Web site to report dog attacks and attacks on other animals.
The data did not include the location or type of attacks.
The NYPD sd it does not have any data on the types of dogs involved in the attacks.
There were 13,902 dog bite and attack complnts reported to the 311 system in 2010, which represents a 4 percent decrease from the previous year, police sd.
The increase in dog attacks was reported in the Bronx and the citywide total in 2011 was 13 percent.
There was a 28 percent increase in the overall number of complnts about people attacked by dogs, according to the NYPD.
There was a significant increase in the number of complnts about dogs running at large, a report showed.
There was a 6 percent increase in the number of complnts about animals attacking people and 4 percent increase in the overall complnts about animals.
“The increased number of animal related complnts is most likely an indicator of increased public awareness and reporting of animal abuse,” an NYPD spokesman sd. “The increase in reports to 311 can also be the result of heightened media attention.”
City Councilmember Rosie Mendez has sponsored a bill to create a commission to investigate dog-bite cases.
“We must act to close the gaps in our law enforcement’s ability to keep our communities safe. We have to bring real accountability to this most fundamental way in which New York City residents are attacked, and to do so by expanding the scope of the 311 system, creating a dedicated 311 animal cruelty line, and increasing the City’s overall enforcement capacity,” she sd.
Mendez’s bill is expected to be heard in the City Council on Dec. 15.
