LAPD investigating dogs at dog parks?

If this sounds like a questionable rumor, it is. However, since we have a dog park in Griffith Park, we are publishing this as an FYI. Act or react accordingly.

Keep copies of your dog's license in your car!

Here is a msg from Officer David Ham of LAPD, he is the Senior Lead Officer for the park and vicinity (of the Sepulveda Basin Dog Park): Just wanted to give you a heads up and to please pass it on to all your friends to avoid any problems. The Dept of Animal Regulation will be working with LAPD to check dog licenses and proper documents including dog vaccine. This is mainly to address the complaints of un-neutered dogs and vicious dogs that visit our dog parks . If documents are not in order the violators will be cited and in some cases the dogs will be held by Animal Reg. This will be done shortly so please advise your friends and visitors of the park to keep a copy of the dogs lic and vaccines in their car.
