Memo tells Harrisburg police to kill, adopt or dump abandoned or lost dogs
March 10, 2012
It’s a bad time to be a dog in the city of Harrisburg.
Slip the leash, get lost or — worse — abandoned, and a dog faces summary execution or extraordinary rendition to some remote corner of Dauphin County.
All of it’s beyond the law, according to Tom Hickey, a member of the Governor’s Dog Law Advisory Board.
Hickey said the people of Harrisburg should beware.
“Keep your dogs inside — don’t risk them getting lost,” Hickey said. “If it gets lost, you’re going to find out real quickly how bad this is.”
