Allowing dogs in Polson Park has sparked excitement and outrage among the citizens of Vernon. Excited individuals rejoice because they feel safe having their furry friends by their side, especially among the increased homeless presence in the park.
Outraged citizens don’t want to avoid stepping on poop as well as needles. Coun. Scott Anderson suggests confronting rule breakers. Will the homeless be given equal rights to have dogs with them in the park now, too? I’m sure dog lovers will feel safe by that.
Any ways, here’s what I have to say. Polson Park is dog free because Vernon has many other dog parks, and Vernon does not have any other parks that contain a significant bird population. There’s ducks, pigeons and geese. Naturally, dogs chase birds.
Who ever thought of this, well, didn’t think much about it.
