Dog owners should always bring poop bags

March 1, 2023

The following is a response to a letter in the Feb. 28 edition about dog owners’ etiquette

Although there are poop bags provided in many places, pet owners should bring their own bags just in case the bag dispenser is empty. In response to leaving bags for others to pick up, there are few, if any, trash receptacles at Cape Henlopen State Park. They should be at all entrances to our beautiful beaches and wherever there are park benches. There are none between the Nature Center and Fort Miles, maybe because it is off-season.
