THIS WEEK'S QUESTION:
An outdoor guide who came under fire for allowing hunting dogs to run where property owners don’t want them says reducing the coyote population in St. Lawrence County is important, even if people are irritated when dogs run on their land. The Department of Conservation allows dogs released on land where they have permission to hunt to legally cross onto other property where they are not wanted. But, the dog owner could be charged with trespassing if it is “foreseeable” that the dogs would go where they are not wanted, a DEC spokesman said.
Do you agree with the DEC law?
Results will be posted Feb. 27.
LAST WEEK'S QUESTION:
Free income tax preparation and electronic filing is offered at various location in St. Lawrence County and the deadline to file is April 15.
How do you prepare your income taxes?
