Dogs have no place at wildlife sanctuary

Buttertubs Marsh is the only trail/park/sanctuary in the area that does not allow pets, and for good reason.

To the Editor,

I walk Buttertubs Marsh in all seasons. It is the only trail/park/sanctuary in the area that does not allow pets, and for good reason. Recently more and more dogs and owners have been making the rounds at the marsh. All three entrances bear signage, gates, and information boards pleading for respect of the environs and the wildlife that inhabit the area. Domestic animals have no place in wildlife sanctuaries, no matter how well-behaved or cute.

Have respect for a diminishing ecosystem, respect for its inhabitants, and respect for those of us who carefully walk its trail.
