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. The discussion involved a property in the city of Ludowici he does not own. An article in the April 24 edition mischaracterized the parcel about which the commissioners were expressing concern. The Coastal Courier regrets the error.
