Fawn Stuck in a Fence. I wonder if this could be the same critter I wrote about earlier this week, who was hoisted by teens at the Gill Tract. Peralta is kinda far from there. Hope she/he is OK. http://albany.patch.com/articles/teens-carrying-live-fawn-and-then-what

I see it's posted as a City Ordinance (no dogs 4 - 7pm), when I asked a policeman patrolling the area HEAVILY up until 1 minute before 7 why the oridinance was in place, he said he didn't know, but the Chief told them to put 'special attention' to it, and the Bulb watch became secondary. Does anyone know exactly why the Ordinance was put into place? There was no baseball going on at the time.

I thought that the 4-7 restriction was just 2 days/week?

I looked it up on the city of albany website under "dogs in albany parks" and it refers to closure times/dates for the sports field. I'm assuming they mean the little dog park part too? Here it is: Saturdays from 12:00 pm to 6:00 pm; Mondays and Thursdays from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm during daylight saving time. Typically March through October: Click here for dates; Mondays and Thursday from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm during Standard time . Typically November through February: Click here for dates; When a field user has acquired a permit through the City of Albany for use of the sports field.
