Readers Write: Unwanted pets getting dumped in county parks


The nature preserves and parks of Nassau County are renowned for their beauty and respect for wildlife and nature. 

Unfortunately some people do not respect this and have been dumping no longer wanted house pets in these forests. This is inhumane. 

These animals, which are domesticated,cannot hunt and survive outdoors.

As the winter approaches more pets are being released into the forests of Nassau County. 

Please spread the word amongst your family, friends and neighbors of this sad and inhumane practice. 

Try to find a new home for an unwanted pet or if you cannot bring the animal to a shelter.
