Dog killed

Nov 20, 2012. A Chihuahua was killed by three huskies. It was playing in the small dog section. The Huskies owners left the three dogs unattended in the gate entrance area as he picked up after them. They let themselves into the small dog area and injured the chihuahua. The dog died the next day after surgery was attempted. The chihuahua owner suffered bites to her hand. Cannon, the owner of the huskies was a regular at the park and paid the $4000 vet bills. Additionally, there is a $100 city fine for the dogs injuring the woman.

everything we needed

We are traveling through WB and stopped for our pooch to get some execise off-leash. It doesn't have much shade, but it had enough space to romp. Unfortunately we hit it at a time when no other dogs were there to play with. We found clean water, kiddie pools, a donated frisbee an several well-loved balls.

Not impressed

Very disappointed ... We had a great day at the park, no problems! Then this woman(?) came in bossing everyone and the dogs around. So because of this she ruined our day and we left. If only Wilkes Barre had another dog park!! Other than this horrible woman the park was fun and the dogs loved it!
