A Williams Road woman called Easton Police when she saw a beagle wandering around on Hattertown Road in the morning on Aug. 29. She took the dog to her house and held it for a Monroe Animal Control officer.
Police said there was no match for a missing beagle in the area and that both Easton and Newtown animal control were notified.
The beagle, whose estimated age is between 2 and 10 years, is still staying at the Monroe Animal Shelter at 447 Purdy Hill Road. An animal control officer said she has named the dog "Beatrice".
If the owner or someone interested in adopting the beagle reads this, the phone number for Monroe Animal Control is 203-452-3760.
