Dog owners — Please Read
Channel 6 ABC Action News gave the following news report at noon today, which I think is worth mentioning as a caution for our local community.
RADNOR TWP., Pa. – March 12, 2010 (WPVI) — Officials in Radnor Township, Delaware County, say a second raccoon has bitten a dog. The attack happened on Thursday. The raccoon has not been captured. A different raccoon bit another dog on Monday. That raccoon was caught and tested positive for rabies. In light of the incidents, the township is offering a few safety reminders.
~ Do not let your pets or your children outside unsupervised.
~ Have your pets vaccinated for rabies.
~ Call police if you see a nocturnal animal, like a raccoon, during the day.
~ If someone is bitten, wash the wound immediately and contact a doctor

Maybe this is not the right time to address this but… as a dog owner and lover, last weekend I walked the Wilson park loop two different times. I can not believe the lack of respect other dog owners have. All over the beautiful park you can see what has been left behind by the dogs. The township has kindly put plenty of those poles with baggies to clean up after your dog! Come on people clean up after your dog. I am also, seeing this in my own neighborhood, yuch!
Kathy — Thank you for the update on the dogs at Wilson Farm Park. Please, please be considerate of others and clean up after your animals.
