In checking our records I discovered that our clerk provided me with the number of stray dog complaints responded to in 2012 and not the number of strays we actually recovered. While we responded to 150 incidents, we actually took custody of 31 animals. 12 more stray dogs were held by citizens when the shelter stopped receiving animals. Sorry for the mix-up.

Beth Tp Strays Lower Than Reported
On Monday, in "Who Let the Dogs Out," I told you that Bethlehem Township leads Northampton County in stray dogs, with 150 reported in 2012. I was relying on a Meyner Center report. I have since learned that the number is actually much lower, as Township Police Chief Dan Pancoast explained in an email to the Meyner Center in July.
