Pet Tip of the Week/Wildlife Lookout



The more that our beautiful parish grows, the more that displacement of local wildlife occurs.  For this reason, it is a very good idea to follow the leash laws that are in place for pets, especially at night, when the nocturnal animals tend to be more active.  It’s nice to think about our pets making animal friends with the non-domesticated animals, but it doesn’t always work that way.  Opossums and raccoons can be particularly vicious with both cats and dogs, causing injuries from bites, scratches, etc.  Non-domesticated animals may also carry diseases, bacteria or parasites that could cause other issues besides wounds.
The other aspect of allowing pets to roam is that they tend to relieve themselves in often inopportune locations, and the owner has no way of knowing if the pet is not being watched. If the owner is not aware of where there animal defecated, then the owner will probably not pick it up either, which is a problem.  It is unfortunate that pets are no longer allowed at public events in Covington, but one memory of the Farmer’s Market several years ago was of a woman who literally dragged a large yellow lab through the market while it was “doing its business,” dropping little bits everywhere.   Sadly, the woman ignored the fact, neglecting to pick up after her animal.   Please Be A Responsible Pet Owner!
