FERAL DOGS CLOSE WHITEWATER PRESERVE

FERAL DOGS CLOSE WHITEWATER PRESERVE

Whitewater Preserve has been closed since January 19, and officials aren’t sure when it will re-open. Rangers discovered a partially eaten calf and believe it was attacked and killed by three feral pit bulls. Hikers on the Pacific Crest Trail also reported seeing three dogs attack a full-grown steer several days prior to the discovery of the killed calf on January 19. Rangers have notified Riverside County Animal Control and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife because the preserve is bighorn sheep habitat. Rangers report the preserve will remain closed until they can “remedy the situation.” For more information, call the preserve at 760-325-7222.
