This is such a touchy topic. Even though this happened this week in Massachusetts, I have seen it here in Maine as well. People let their animals loose and then don’t watch them. This time, it ended in a golden retriever named Walle getting shot and killed.
There were over 3 million visits to Acadia National Park during 2016, and after observing the traffic coming off I-395 in Brewer and eventually clogging High Street in Ellsworth, one has to believe that even more made the trip this year.
