Puppy Death Fuels Call for Separate Dog Parks

April 8, 2006 - Posted at 12:24 p.m. CST

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) _ The recent death of a Chihuahua puppy at

a no-leash dog park in Kansas City has small-dog owners demanding a

park of their own.

Four-month-old Gizmo was picked up and crushed yesterday as his

owner stood nearby chatting with other dog owners at Penn Valley

Park. The other dog was identified as a Brittany or golden

retriever mix.

The puppy was pronounced dead at a nearby animal hospital.

K-Nine Club owner Amy Bentz says she's applied several times for

money to build a park for smaller dogs next to Penn Valley.

Parks and Recreation District Manager Mark Bowland says the city

has considered building a separate park but doesn't know how much

it would cost. He says a temporary barrier will be installed this

week to separate dogs of different sizes.
