PETS IN THE NATIONAL PARK

PETS IN THE NATIONAL PARK

We feed and love them. Pets may be man’s best friend; however, they are not the best friend of the wild. They can become prey to wildlife and are vulnerable to prickly plants and desert environments. Our furry companion can also be a predator, and though they behave at home, their hunting instincts will be elevated in the wilderness. They exert pressure on many species and cause wildlife to expend precious energy reserves that may mean the difference between life and death. Stop in at any visitor center for other options on where to walk your pet within the park. And please remember:

Pets are not allowed on any trails or in wilderness areas.
They must be on a leash no longer than six feet at all times.
Pets must be within 100 feet of a campground, roadside or picnic area.
For Z107.7, this is Park Ranger Pat Pilcher encouraging you to visit your neighborhood national park.
