THUMBS DOWN – to the person that let their big dog run off leash on Friday May 3 in the late morning by the creek area south of the dog park. This dog killed three baby geese. Two babies managed to escape and made their way into the field at S.A. Cawker P.S. Luckily with the help of my husband and son we were able to re-unite the two babies with their parents. If your dog kills wildlife keep them on leash!
