No more dogs

October 23, 2013

It has been resolved by the Delaware Town Board that dogs are not permitted in the town park anymore—anytime or anyway (not even on a leash). This ban was precipitated by a dog fight at a farmers market a couple of weeks ago. The dog tussle was most unfortunate and potentially dangerous to anyone around. Thank goodness no one (except one of the dogs) was injured. Everyone at the meeting seemed to agree that dogs should not be permitted at any function or gathering in the Callicoon Creek Park. That seems quite appropriate and prudent. But to ban canines completely from the park, to me, seems very extreme and over reactionary. All I can say, I sure hope two kids don’t get in a fight in the park.
