Mike Fiaoni from the Missouri Department of Conservation reports that dog traps have now been set for the wild dogs that have been roaming loose at Shawnee Mac Lake. The traps are intended to capture the stray dogs and remove them from the area. These strays have not had distemper or rabies shots and may have mange. These animals can be dangerous to humans and as well as other animals. Fiaoni reports that the traps will be monitored and it is a violation to tamper with the traps, release dogs that have been trapped or to provide food for the wild dogs. Violators will receive a citation. Fiaoni also says that citizens that like to walk their dogs in the Shawnee Mac area are reminded to keep your animals on a leash and not let them roam free. This also is a violation that can result in a citation. If you have any questions regarding the traps or the wild dogs at the Shawnee Mac Lake can call Fiaoni at 729-3182.
