No dogs allowed in the park!

I really do wonder where people’s brains are these days.  I mean, to bring a dog to a state park where there are wild animals and a conservation area.  Why would they do that? Don’t they know they’re not allowed to do that? After all there are signs on entering the park that says but surely common sense would dictate that you just don’t take dogs into areas where there are wild animals.  They will smell the dog’s presence as will the dog smell theirs.  And to top it off there is bait laid around the park for foxes – what if the dog found one of those?

So, what makes this lady think she can walk her dog at Lysterfield Lake Park this afternoon?  We saw her walk through the conservation area with her friends as well.

She gets the big thumbs down award!

If you know her, please tell her. And if she still doesn’t believe it, how about pointing her to these regulations.  It’s the second major point on the list.

By the way, this isn’t the first time I’ve seen people at the park or the beach at the park with dogs. Granted most of the time they are on leashes, but that still doesn’t make it alright. If a Park Ranger sees you with a dog, you may get a hefty fine for the privilege.
