Animal Watch: Humane Society squashes parvo rumor
GRAND FORKS, ND (WDAZ-TV) - Some pet owners and their furry friends couldn't get in to a local dog park.
Rumors of parvo at the dog park and the Circle of Friends Humane Society next door started circulating on social media, after dog owners were greeted by a chained gate and broken fence.
Circle of Friends Humane Society Director Lauralee Tupa says they locked the gate for safety's sake, but Parvo isn't a problem, and hasn't been since April of 2016.
“The fence is locked because two public dogs got into a fight and they broke part of the fence,” said Tupa. “We're working on fundraising the money to fix the fence and then to get somebody in to fix it."
