Pooch remains cause concern in Terrace, B.C.

The Terrace Youth Soccer Association is asking that those using Christy Park as a dog run remember to clean up after their pups

Christy Park in Terrace

The Terrace Youth Soccer Association (TYSA) is asking that those using Christy Park as a dog run remember to clean up after their pups.

Yes, that’s in reference to what you think it is (TYSA board member Blaine Kluss said the club’s recent field clean up yielded “no fewer that 100 dog remains on that field.”) but it’s also in reference to something people may not even realize is an issue.

And that’s the leftover bits of wood from sticks used to play fetch.

“We found hundreds upon hundreds of wood shards all over the field,” said Kluss. “I don’t think people realize the kind of damage that can do to a kid’s leg. I’ve seen it. It’s not every day, but it happens frequently enough for it to be a concern.”

He said the problem has “been growing exponentially over the past few years” and said while the refs do pre-game safety walks, he encourages those using the park to “bring a ball down. Let the dog go chase a ball.”
