My guess is the person on Cleveland who claimed a dog killed her chickens had her revenge. Folks should just follow the town law and keep their dogs on leads while on the trail. (I know that advice is like whistling in the wind!)

Gee, with all these cases of vandalism and grand theft auto, makes you wonder, are the Croton Police even patrolling the streets at night?

Does anybody know why two dogs were poisoned and killed on Cleveland Drive last week? If you have a dog, make sure you keep an eye on them when walking on the Croton Gorge Trail and down the 200 block- Two great neighborhood mutts, and loved pets were killed.

A bit strange, I would say.
