Animal control does not respond to cat calls

| June 30, 2020 4:21 PM

Kalispell Police Department received a report that someone’s tortoise colored cat jumped out of a vehicle and it was OK to give out the owner’s name if the feline was found. The cat owner was advised that “animal control doesn’t respond to cat calls.”

Loud music and revving engines were purportedly shaking someone’s house across the street at all hours of the night. The resident wanted police to check it out and “make sure it’s documented.”

A man allegedly hit a woman in a car and she took off running, but returned and he told her to get back in “since she had nowhere to go.”

A man reportedly kept getting interrupted while reading a book in his car by someone who kept approaching his window asking why he was there. The man allegedly thought the person seemed “unofficial” because they were dressed in sweatpants and wanted to know if there was a problem with him parking at the location. The person wearing sweatpants turned out to be an employee. Both were counseled.

A passerby reportedly assumed a man hunched over trash cans and looking around was doing drugs.

A property owner allegedly called police to report an RV was hooked up to water and sewer and they didn’t know who they were.

About 10 people and 12 vehicles were reportedly blocking people from getting in and out of a parking lot and were setting off fireworks. The person was concerned the situation might escalate and claimed the people “ran down a man in a grocery store parking lot, trying to start a fight.

A woman allegedly fired a gun accidentally when she tried to take it from a man. It was reportedly thought the gun was unloaded because the magazine had been taken out, but there may have been one round still in the chamber. The fracas reportedly occurred when a man came into the house and pointed the gun at the woman and said, “You both need to sit the f--- down, we need to talk.”
