My heart goes out to the families of two dogs electrocuted this past week. Dusty, another sweet lovable canine, electrocuted last week from a live power line knocked down due to storm damage in Poconos, DE. Reading the details of his death brings tears to my eyes and memories resurface. “It was something that shouldn’t have happened,” said Delaware Water Gap Assistant Fire Chief John Smith. He’s right. This should NEVER happen……but it does. Please remember to keep you and your pet away from downed power lines, especially when water is present in all situations including construction sites,lamp posts, street lights, manhole covers, etc. Contact voltage KILLS! It is a hidden danger, please be aware of your surroundings and practice safety when walking all streets and sidewalks.
