COLBERT, Okla. -- Some residents in Colbert are upset with the city for not taking care of dead animals, and we warn you the video posted with this story is graphic and disturbing.

A dog was hit by a car in front of Donna Foster’s home on Thursday morning, and even after a number of calls, she says the city didn't do anything about it.

So on Friday morning, Foster brought the animal to Colbert City Hall and threatened to leave it on the buildings front steps.

Police were on hand and helped her take care of the problem, but she says the city should take care of the issue.

"I’m hoping they find a reasonable way of disposing of these animals when they get hit in the city and that that animal doesn’t have to lay there and be disrespected," Foster said.

City officials say they are working on the problem.

    Call Denison Paramedics? Do you know some of their records? Obviously not.

    And further more whoever Q LOCATION is, if you feel so strongly about this issue why don't you post your name or confront the medic personally??????

    Well for starters their is no restrictions on the medic's licence. Also she is being held accountable for her actions. Although the medic has made a minor mistake it does not make her any less of a medic.And Yes she does have a VALID DRIVERS LICENCE!!!!!

    If you don't know the answers to all the questions you just stated about the medic then you should find out from the correct source before you make comments about it. That is why there are so many stories going around. People speak before they know the facts.

    It sounds as if you are defending this medic. She should be held accountable for her actions. If she got a DUI why was she driving the ambulace in the first place? Isn't there some kind of temporary restriction to driving after a person gets a DUI? Did her boss not know she had got a DUI? Did the town counsel know she had got a DUI?

    Well just to let you all know, the medic mentioned in the last comment has not been convicted of any DUI charges. She was not on duty at the time of the mentioned DUI and is part of her personal time and has nothing to do with her duties as a medic. Just think about what you are all saying before you have all the facts!!! Are you telling me that all of you always wear your seatbelt and you have never had just one or two drinks and thought you could drive home. Yea, I bet you have!!!

    It's only more of the same. Incompetence is alive and well in Colbert. City officials hope nobody brings things to their attention. For example, how many citizens know that the ambulance driver who wasn't wearing a seatbelt, is also facing a DWI charge committed before the accident. Makes you feel safe, doesn't it? Call Denison paramedics or drive yourself, your chances are better.

    Way to go Donna! Love it. Maybe you should have left the poor animal on the front steps of the mayors house, instead. Ha, ha.

    In this day and age, dogs are a part of our families,almost like children.If something happened to a child,that child would not lay there for one minute.We as people should be more respectful of animals that get loose,or just wonder off. If someone accidentally runs over a pet,should they contact the police? Or is it "just" a dog? Everyone insists upon a Dog Catcher,so should an owner of the animal, his property, shouldnt he insist on due prossess? Thats the law right? Where is the animal rights people now? If someone came into a yard and took a child, or ran over one in the street, that would be wrong. Why is it not a law that you should call the police when you run over a dog?

    this is an on going problem for colbert, the city charges the citizens for a dog catcher but no one will pick up stray dogs. you can call the police dept.but they wont do anything. there have been several calls to the police dept. on dogs running loose on south franklin st. but the police will do nothing these dogs have killed peoples pets and tried to bite people.if the town of colbert is not going to take care of the dog problem they need to stop charging for this service on the water bill.
