Yes, spring is in the air and soon the young wildlife will be everywhere. FYI there are laws in place regarding dogs chasing wildlife (even in Pender Harbour). A dog’s natural instinct is to chase wildlife and you, the human, are the one responsible for your dog. Not only is the wildlife being chased at risk, so is your dog. I have lived in a safe, quiet, lovely neighbourhood for 23 years. There was respect amongst residents and for wildlife. Recently, wildlife is being chased, and not by coyotes. My dog, on leash, was attacked by another dog as we walked on our street. Upsetting to say the least. I will share what I found out should this happen to you. To report an incident, call the RAPP line 1 877 952 RAPP(7277). Provide address and brief description of the incident, then go online to the SCRD website and a fill out a (quick) report.
Nice saying I came across and something to think about, and even better, act upon, “Where ever you live you should make it a better place.”
