Recommend NO dogs at Padre Island Nat. Seashore

This is on the news section of the Padre Island National Seashore site

Park Superintendent Recommends that Park Visitors Refrain from Bringing their Dogs to the Park Until Further Notice.
Release Date: 11/24/2009
Contact: Jim Lindsay, Chief of Natural Resources Management
Phone Number: (361)949-8173 (Ext. 223)
(Corpus Christi, Texas)- Superintendent Joe Escoto announced today that park visitors should refrain from bringing their dogs to the park until park staff can determine why several Coyotes and one dog have died. During the past week, two Coyotes were found dead and two more had to be euthanized due to the severity of their condition. Also, a park visitor reported that one of their dogs died and one is sick after being in the park.
The park has limited information regarding the cause of the deaths but is investigating the possible reasons for the mortality. A Coyote carcass has been sent off for further examination. Please remember that if you bring your dog to the park, you may be putting them at risk. The National Park Service will advise the public once more information is available.
