According to Tewksbury Police, a call came in just before 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 23, from an Easement Road resident. She reported her neighbors have two dogs that they let run free at times. She said the dogs were aggressive and that one of them had charged at her while she was outside on her own property. The caller also said she had taken photos of the dogs on her property.
