Long County official: Stray dogs, horses cause problems

Editor's note: This article has been revised to remove a section that mischaracterized a discussion during the April 19 Long County Board of Commissioners' meeting. The following correction will appear in the May 1 print edition. Mike Allen's property was not involved in a discussion during the Long County Board of Commissioners' April 19 meeting.
