Puppy Stolen
 

Hi Everyone,

Everyone be careful when attending off leash parks in the Winnipeg Area.

This past week one of my portie friends had her 4 month old puppy snatched
in front of her eyes.  Luckily there were a number of people and dogs at
Assiniboine park and chased the person down as he tried to escape with the
puppy to his car.  He dropped the puppy in the chase and they managed to get
the license of his car.  The police were called and he was apprehended.   He
was looking for purebred dogs to steal and sell later.  My friend was very
lucky to get her puppy  back shaken but ok.

Please inform as many people as you can.
Judy C. with the porties.

( I think a 'Portie' is short for Portuguese Water Dog)

Coyotes lurking in Southdale

Natalija Zmavc and her husband saw these four coyotes in Southdale Sunday.
A Winnipeg woman has alerted Manitoba Conservation and warned neighbours with small dogs after a pack of coyotes was spotted in her Southdale backyard.

Natalija Zmavc and her husband first spotted two coyotes Sunday at about noon in their yard, which backs onto the Niakwa golf course and the Seine River. It's only the second time the couple has seen coyotes near their Southdale home, and they rushed to snap photos.

"Then they bolted, and that's when we realized there wasn't just two, but four," said Zmavc.

The pack pranced along the river and then doubled back before disappearing.

Last month, Winnipeg police shot a coyote in the North End, and others have been spotted recently near the Kildonan Settlers Bridge and in Point Douglas.

Zmavc said she's concerned about small dogs in her neighbourhood, many of whom are owned by seniors who occasionally let them out unattended. And, she said, Seine River trails are frequently used by children, cross-country skiers and people on snow-shoes who may not be able to fend off a pack of hungry coyotes.

The trail is also used often by deer, and that's likely what lured the pack into the city.

In fact, the first time Zmavc saw a coyote on the trail was last month when one was feasting on a deer.

Manitoba Conservation advises people who encounter a coyote to keep calm and ensure the animal has an escape route. If the coyote is aware of you, let it know you are human by shouting, waving your arms to appear more threatening, and throwing stones or other objects.

Do not turn away or run, and if the coyote attacks, fight back instead of playing dead.

Barb wire
 
Barb wire alert! I found some barb wire coming out of the ground at the north-west corner of the Dogwood trail and the Quarry trail. When the snow disappears a bit I'll get in there with my side cutters and try to get it out of the under growth. There is masking tape wrapped around it.

I got rid of most of it. There is still some that is overgrown with roots.

Little Mountain Park more than a place for dogs

Kristy Greening, one of the Little Mountain Park Dog Club founders, enjoys a late winter’s afternoon at the park with her dogs Kaleah and Kobe. Photo Store
There’s 160 acres of unspoiled, city-owned wooded land located within the 
Perimeter, but to say it’s a Winnipeg park isn’t quite right.

Sound confusing? It is, and many people still don’t know much about Little Mountain Park, which lies above Winnipeg’s northwest corner on Farmer Avenue, just off Route 90.
Founded as a civic park in 1965, the land once contained two operating limestone quarries, remnants of which can still be seen by visitors.

James Dooks and Kristy Greening, Little Mountain Park Dog Club founders, give their dogs some exercise as they play fetch at the park on Farmer Avenue. (JORDAN THOMPSON) Photo Store
Part of the confusion arises from the fact that the park is owned by the City of Winnipeg, but lies outside its boundaries, within the RM of Rosser.

Winnipeg councillor Brian Mayes (St. Vital) calls the park "an orphan", but he could be said to be stepping in as its foster parent by making Little Mountain Park’s future the topic of an upcoming public meeting.

"I’m trying to get ideas about what it needs," Mayes said.

In his role as chair of the Mayor’s Environment Advisory Council, Mayes realized no other councillor was taking responsibility for the park. This means it hasn’t been receiving funding through any councillor’s ward budget.

However, that doesn’t mean the park’s been forgotten. In fact, it’s a favourite destination for dog owners and their pets who use the trails winding through aspen woods as a year-round recreational destination.

One of Little Mountain Park Dog Club’s founders, Kristy Greening, and her family, including two labs and a shepherd cross, live close to the park in the Garden Grove neighbourhood. She said they use it every day as an off-the-leash area.

"You can walk for miles with your dog," she said. "There are hundreds who use it every single day."

She said the trees provide shelter from winter’s cold winds.

While Little Mountain Sportsplex and The Players Course are recreational businesses located next to the park, Little Mountain Park itself just contains barbecue pits, picnic tables and washrooms that are open for part of the year.

Greening said the Dog Club was recently formed to provide a voice for the dog owners who want to preserve their off-the-leash space. They plan on attending the public meeting, which Mayes said will be held in late May.

Lloyd Johnson, who has used the park for dog walking since the mid-1990s, said he’ll try to get the word out about the public meeting through his Little Mountain Park Pet Owners association website at www.lmppoa.ca

Greening mentioned a rumour that CentrePort Canada might want to run a highway through or close to the park, and Johnson said a roadway is shown on maps put out by CentrePort.

Riva Harrison, CentrePort’s executive director of communications and marketing, said she was aware there is talk of a road being constructed to meet CentrePort Canada Way if Chief Peguis Trail is extended westward along Jefferson. However, at this time, there’s no truth to the rumour.

"Since day one, the park has been protected as green space on our land use plan," she said.

Mayes said the meeting’s date and location will be made public.

"We will have a report back to the mayor and get it into the budget," he said.

Golf
 
Over the past couple of days we have been discussing the idea of having the first LMP golf open. It would be a fun event, teaming a 'PRO' golfer (somebody that has at least hit a ball) with a non golfer. We thought a two ball foursome format would be that way to go. And for prizes, heaven knows the limits that it could reach, (bag of cookies or two given our big budget)! I was going to approach Players about it and get their thoughts. Green fees are $20.00 (I think) for 9 holes plus club rental if needed.

As of right now there is no date is set but let me know if interested. I've spoken to a few people and they showed a real interest. I think I heard somebody named Tiger was jealous that he was not going to be there, (but I could be wrong on that).

Thanks
 

 

Thanks to the great turnout we had today for our clean-up. I found out that the City had shown up yesterday and did some cleaning. We took bags and bags out of the bush. Many thanks to Darlene who brought doughnuts and to Pat and Keith for the bags. A huge Thank You to everybody the volunteered their time freely to make our park look great!

On a upsetting note, we were at the club house at around 12:00 packing up and a white late model van pulled over to the side of the road at the North West corner and dumped a bunch of garbage and papers that blew around the field. We went after them, but they saw us coming and took off.

Hello,

We are reaching out to you based on our shared commitment of helping animals in need.

We need your help.

Since its inception in 1990, BrightHaven has served over 5000 senior, sick and/or disabled animals through its sanctuary, hospice and rescue programs. Rising animal care costs, increased demand for animal rescue intervention and an ongoing tough economic climate now threaten BrightHaven's ability to continue to support the vulnerable population it serves.

 

BrightHaven can help save many more animals but to do this we need the funds for more food, more medication and more staff to look after and help the cats, dogs and farm animals that come to us for sanctuary.

 

We have launched a crowdfunding campaign to help us raise funds so that we can continue to give these wonderful animals the gift of tomorrow.

You can help us save an animal's life by sharing our campaign link on your websites, your blogs, your social media channels, in newsletters or in any other way possible that will help us promote our cause.

Cross-country
 
My name is Darcy Dewit and I am phys ed teacher for 7 Oaks. I just wanted to give the dog owners a heads-up that we're having a cross-country run for early years students on May 6 and 7th. (Rain date May 8 and 9) Normally we hold our race in the trails but the poor weather has forced us to change the course. We will have to run our race in the field area. The event is quite short, it goes from about 12-2:30pm. If you could please post this on your website and share with other dog owners it would be greatly appreciated. :)

Thank you,

Make it a great day!

At yesterday’s meeting, Brian Mayes invited WINDOG to make a presentation at the LMP consultation. They will make a presentation in support of expanding the off-leash area to include the trails.  It’s being held on Thursday, May 29 at the Library at 765 Keewatin from 7 to 8:30pm. I hope everyone will find time to be there to support LMP dog owners.

 

Grant Nordman’s holding a public consultation about Voyageur Park on May 21at Heritage Community Centre - 950 Sturgeon Road. It’s a “come and go” so a presentation isn’t appropriate but he’s asked WINDOG to present in support of re-purposing at the Standing Policy Committee on Public Policy on June 3.

Trees Cut
 

Our City has decided that it needed to cut a band into the Popular Trees in the North East corner of the park along the trail to the old maintenance storage compound. The reason I was told was, to create a Natural Grassland area for Wildflowers. So instead of cutting them down, mature trees as well as saplings the City has cut bands into them so that disease and rot can take them! I am appalled by the City's actions. We have a huge Grassland area in the middle of the park for flowers and grasses.

There are opposing positions on this issue. I was sent an e-mail by a person that was in favour of the removal of the trees.  No problem, everybody has a right to their opinion.

Winnipeg dog parks in ruff shape: report

Diesel enjoys some time at the off-leash dog park in Charleswood on Thursday, May 8, 2014

Tamara Forlanski
WINNIPEG – The city’s off leash dog parks are over-used, and in need of some repair.

Those are some findings of an external study first requested by city councillors two years ago.

The 70 page document was posted on the city’s website Friday: it will be presented to a city committee next week.

The report says in some off leash parks grass has turned into mud, there isn’t enough parking and there are land drainage issues.

 
It also highlights areas of the city that are under-served by dog parks including parts of the North End.

Winnipeg has 11 off leash dog parks. Edmonton has 49 and Calgary has 150.

The purpose of the study was to develop guidelines for dealing with off leash parks in the future.

Chris Funk brings his boxer Diesel to the the Charleswood dog park. It will be taken over by the extension of the William Clement parkway.

“I hope they keep some of the park,” said Funk, who lives close to the site.

Brian Mayes is the chair of the Protection and Community Services committee.

He said the city won’t be taking money from the road budget to spend on dog parks however does feel the guidelines have value.

“The idea was to do some planning about where do we need them and what should they look like,” said Mayes.

St. Charles councillor Grant Nordman is interested in converting Voyageur Park into an off leash location. The plan would still need council approval.

There is an information session scheduled for Wednesday, May 21 from 4:00 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Heritage Victoria Community Club on Sturgeon Road

Voyageur Park
 
Councilor Grant Nordman is looking for your input on re-purposing this area and making it an official off-leash area. This would ensure it remains green space and all the people who are already using it as dog park could do so legally. As part of the development of the design for the proposed Voyageur Off-Leash Dog Park, he will be hosting an information session on Wed., May 21 from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Heritage Victoria Community Club on Sturgeon Road. Grant, along with the landscape planner for this proposal, will be on hand to listen and to gain your input on the proposal.

Pellets
 
Darlene had a interview with Gordon Sinclair of the Winnipeg Free Press today.The story will be running tomorrow. Mr. Sinclair found out that the pellets they put out to poison the Gophers has peanut butter so no wonder the dogs eat it and kids too not to mention anyone with peanut allergies!!!

Brian Mayes the City of Winnipeg Councilor has been made aware of the problem and will bring it up at City Council on Friday. CJOB and CBC also tried to contact us but I was at work and missed the opportunity.

CBC News
 
Winnipeg city officials have suspended its gopher control program in all its parks after admitting there were "deficiencies" that resulted in gopher poison being left within easy reach of dogs at Little Mountain Park.

Local dog owners have been talking about a warning that's circulating on social media about poisonous pellets at the northwest Winnipeg park.

The warning has spread quickly since it was posted on Reddit on Monday by someone who says their dog ate some pellets that were on the ground in the park's off-leash area.

The dog was treated by an emergency veterinarian who said she had eaten almost a cup's worth of the pellets, according to the website post.

The City of Winnipeg investigated the incident and "determined there were deficiencies," a spokesperson told CBC News in an email late Tuesday afternoon.

The spokesperson said the city has a contract with a professional pest control company to treat parks in areas with reported gopher and Richardson ground squirrel infestations.

Officials are following up with the contractor and reviewing its operating procedures. The spokesperson would not identify the contractor in question.

In the meantime, gopher control operations have been suspended, meaning no more gopher poison will be applied in all city parks for the time being, the spokesperson said.

The pest control company is responsible for notifying the public with signs, and the "control product is placed deep in the gopher hole away from potential human or pet contract" before the hole is packed with fresh soil, according to the city.

A number of gopher holes are visible in the ground at Little Mountain Park, but dog owners who were there on Tuesday morning said they could not find the signs warning them about the gopher poison.

"If they're going to do it, they should do it properly and post some signs everywhere … so that people are aware," said Edwin Yee, who went to the park with his two dogs.

"There's kids that often play in and around that whole area, too, so I'm concerned about both human health and animal health."

Yee said he looked around three different entrances and did not see any signage.

Winnipeg Humane Society CEO Bill McDonald says while he understands the park's gopher problem has to be dealt with for safety reasons, he thinks the city should be more proactive in letting park users know where the poison has been used.

Creep
 
 

Hi there… just got a text from Keith said they came across a creepy looking guy 40 - 50 yrs. old lurking around the bush in the South west corner of the park between the golf course trail and SW corner. Said it was Spooky.

 

Can we send out an alert on the page? There are a few people (women) that do walk by themselves.

With the warm weather all the creeps seem to come out!

One of our foreman just walked in and told me that his daughter is selling her place in Dugald and has to give away her dogs. (free)  Here’s a synopsis of the dogs.

 

 

2 Brown female St. Bernard / Lab cross – have shots

1 Black and white female St. Bernard / Lab cross has shots.

 

1 Black Male looks like a Newfoundlander. ( no shots )

 

The father is a pure bred St. B from England and the mom is a Lab cross.

 

All the dogs are 7 months old.  None are spayed or neutered.

 

If anyone is interested they can contact Vic Martin at 338-7652 or 470-7314.

 

He showed me the pics of the dogs and they are beautiful!!  I just loved the black one.  If we didn't have the 4, I’d be adopting one of them immediately, they’re that gorgeous and apparently very friendly.

 

Roman,

No excuse for using poison that threatens kids, pets

If you hate the way the City of Winnipeg does things, but you love all creatures great and small -- or even if you despise them -- the story in Wednesday's Free Press had all the ingredients.

Including poison.

Dog owners howling mad over poison, the headline read.

The story went on to explain local dog-club members were outraged when a dog became seriously ill after eating rodent poison in Little Mountain Park, a green space with an off-leash park and, by the city's estimate, an overabundance of gophers whose natural hole-digging nature are considered hazardous to people playing or even walking in the park.

The city has since acknowledged the bait, which kills over time by causing internal bleeding, was improperly applied and there were problems with the warning signage posted in the park. The bait is supposed to be placed in the gopher burrows and the hole covered to prevent it from being ingested by other creatures, from off-leash dogs and birds, to free-ranging, curious children. But that's not the way the pest-control company the city contracts for the work applied it, as the owner of the poisoned dog can attest.

Curious myself, I decided to gopher it and dig a little deeper into the story.

The city acknowledged Wednesday in an email exchange there is at least one other method for controlling the great prairie gopher menace beyond poison pellets: "gaseous oxides of sulphur" that's released into the gopher holes. But the preferred poison is a grain-based anticoagulant that kills by causing internal bleeding over time, a delay factor that allows a vet to apply the antidote that saves a poisoned dog.

The product, Ground Force, is known specifically by its Pest Control Act registration number, 20239.

As the Saskatchewan government's website on agricultural gopher control suggests, Ground Force is popular because it's relatively inexpensive, readily accessible and easy to use. I learned something else from a different website about the product. There's a warning about an ingredient that can kill some children quicker than the poison: "contains the allergens peanuts and wheat."

Actually, it wasn't Wednesday's story that first alerted me to the controversy. It was an email Tuesday evening from a 51-year-old woman named Darlene Korzinski who has been visiting that park since she was a kid and now walks her young black Labrador, Maisy, there almost every evening. That's what she was doing Monday night when Maisy came upon a gopher going through death throes on the ground outside its subterranean home.

Mercifully, it was put out of its misery by a man with a wildlife background. "With many families there last night with children and dogs," she wrote, "a very disturbing memory that many of us at the park tonight will have with us for a while... a poor soul struggling to live. For what? So there are a few less holes? Makes me sick!"

It's not that Darlene doesn't understand gopher holes can be hazardous. She sprained an ankle and was in a cast for two weeks after stepping in a Little Mountain Park gopher hole during a snowstorm last November. But she blames herself, not the gopher.

Darlene added she was "sickened by the actions of the City of Winnipeg and what I saw."

What she saw Tuesday, and again Wednesday, were people who were still picking up gopher carcasses and dumping them in the garbage.

"There's other wildlife in there, too," she told me when we spoke later on the phone. "We have a couple of eagles flying around there and horned owls, which are the gophers' predators. So are they picking these gophers up and dying from eating them? That's my concern."

Darlene had another question.

"Is the city doing this in other parks in the city?"

Yes, according to the city, but only "in areas in which the gopher infestation has become severe and causes serious safety concerns."

But what's more dangerous? Poison pellets laced with peanuts children and dogs might eat or gopher holes that can be filled in before a game or practice?

But I'll leave the last word, the last question, to Darlene: "Why would you use poison in a family and dog-used park?"

Needs a Home
 
Here's some quick points about him:

• he is 13 pounds, 7 years old

• he does well with other dogs but probably only one other one and it would depend on the other dogs temperament but he has been living with dogs for five years out of his life • he doesn't have many medical issues other than being high stressed but in the right environment that would definitely ease up. He reacts to certain foods so he is generally kept on the Medi-Cal dental diet • he loves to cuddle!! Just give him a blanket and he is a happy little dog • he is kennel trained and does well in it for long periods of time if you did let him out loose he does do good but he started not to just because of his changing environment and stress. My parents used to always let him out for long periods of time and he did fine but these past few months he's gone through quite a bit so I don't trust him • he knows all his basic commands like sit, lie down, leave it • he barks, but it has slowed down since we moved onto a quieter street • he is not a great traveller, we usually use atravet to sedate him and that really helps. I had a vet student that used to live with us who took him for a car ride and said he was fine so I'm not sure if it's just with us or what but whenever I travel back from Sk to Manitoba I just usually gave him the pills • he is up-to-date on all vaccines and regular yearly appointments was done in April or May • he is extremely lovable and just wants attention which is what he has not been getting at our place • he is high-energy, when we go for walks he beats my other dogs and can go for quite a while. Also, he's pretty good to walk on leash. I used to take him for walks all the time so he's used to it

 

My cell phone number is 204–890–4063.

The city might spend $100,000 on a consultant to map out future off-leash dog parks in Winnipeg.

The mayor's executive policy committee voted to fund the project.

This comes after a dog owner lobby group raised concerns new off -leash park guidelines don't go far enough.

St. Vital Councillor Brian Mayes voted against the plan, saying that money could be better used to improve current dog parks.

New Trail
 
We have a new trail cut through the big field. It follows the tree line trail on the southern edge of the big field through the grass. It's 10 - 20 feet away from the established trail. I believe it is to be used as a fire break when the field is burnt.

Driver gets a scare after truck slammed by rock

Darlene Korzinski's truck was damaged Sunday after she says it was hit by a baseball-sized rock. (JOE BRYKSA / WINNIPEG FREE PRESS)Photo Store
A close call with a large rock has a Winnipeg woman wondering why a pedestrian bridge over a busy highway inside the city isn't screened off.

Darlene Korzinski got a scare Sunday night when a rock slammed onto the top of her new Nissan truck as she drove westbound along the Chief Peguis Trail under the pedestrian bridge at Gateway Road. Korzinski was chatting with her sister inside the cab when a loud noise rattled both of them.

"All of a sudden we heard this 'bang' and it scared me," Korzinski saidMonday morning. "My sister thought it was a tire, but I thought it came from the roof.

"We took a look and when I stood up on the door frame, I saw a huge dent and the white dust from the rock.

"The more I think about it, the more serious that is. A lot of people drive around in convertibles. That could cause a serious injury, not to mention an accident. I ride a motorcycle, too. If I was riding and someone threw a rock like that, I'm a goner. That's so dangerous."

Immediately after impact, (judging from the dent on the edge of the truck roof she figures the rock was the size of a baseball) Korzinski pulled over and looked back at the top of the bridge. Her sister tried to take pictures of the people running away, but it was too dark. The sisters also noticed there were a few good-sized rocks on the highway, as well, suggesting to Korzinski that those throwing the rocks had been at it for some time.

"I don't know why they don't have a cage or screen around that bridge," she said. "This is a highway where vehicles are travelling at a high rate of speed. They have one on the footbridge at Bird's Hill Park over Highway 59. To me, it's the same thing.

"Someone is going to get killed."

Though there is a traffic-light controlled intersection just east of the pedestrian bridge, the posted speed limit on the Chief Peguis Trail is 80 km/h.

This isn't the first time this summer motorists have had to deal with rocks raining down on their vehicles. In June, three boys were charged with mischief after they were caught dropping rocks off the Pembina Highway overpass onto traffic on Bishop Grandin Boulevard.

Hornets Nest
 
Darlene made me aware yesterday morning (Sunday) about a little girl and her dog were stung numerous times by a hornet or wasp. The nest is located under the boards at the club house door. I have sent a note to 311 and made them aware of the situation. The City has responded and would take care of it. With the fall coming on, wasps and hornets do become more aggressive.

Subject: RE: Public Works Department General E-mail Contact : Other - Hornet Nest

Good Afternoon ,

Thank you for taking the time to bring this to our attention. I am so sorry to hear of this and have notified the Insect Control Branch. I did attempt to contact you to verify that this has been reported and to advise that this could take up to 3 business days to get the technician out there and have this addressed completely. The reference number associated with this report is 8664869 should you need to follow up on this for any reason.


Thank you for contacting Winnipeg 311.

Sincerely,
Sherisse

Sasha
 
Sasha, little white Husky owned by a lady from Croatia was hit by a car today at the North Parking lot.

When Darlene arrived at the park this morning the older couple with the basset hounds told me Sasha got hit by a car on the Farmers road at the parking, she rushed her to the vets but have not heard anything, don’t have her number and am concerned, worried and hope Sasha is okay

Please, please  been careful when letting your dogs out of the vehicle; maybe keeping them on their leashes till they exit the parking lot will be necessary on weekends and evenings.Those baseball drivers are CRAZY!! And complete idiots!!!

 

Update:

Although she got hit by a truck she seemed to have escaped any broken bones, a few cuts, bruises and concussion and a few cracked teeth.

Vet said she will be fine.

 

We won’t see her for a while as she will have to recover and her owner is going away for a month.

I have contacted the City about having the speed limit reduced on Framers Rd. They got back to me and said it was the R.M. of Rosser  responsibility.  I should be contacting them directly. I have made the RM aware of the trouble and hopefully they will get back to me soon. Stay tuned!

Buddy
 

 

This little guy was found in a ditch off of the highway south of Portage la Prairie during the week of September 8th by a kind gentleman.


We have named him “Buddy”


He had some wounds to his face that are consistent with perhaps falling from a vehicle after hitching a ride.  His nose was scraped up; he’s missing a tooth and unrelated to the fall he has ear mites which are currently being treated.  The vet thinks this little boy is around 7-8 weeks old and healthy.


He has had a rough start to life – and unfortunately due to the finder’s occupation (which involves a lot of travel) he cannot keep him.  We are looking for a loving home for him – we will gladly assist in his vetting (for his big boy surgery) to ensure that he’s not adding to more kitties needing homes! He is a very loving little boy that likes to curl up on your lap and is realizing that he is a kitty and does enjoy play time!


If you are thinking of adding a new member to your family – or know someone that might want to adopt “Buddy” please contact Ryan at 204 296 6819 to discuss.


We would like to meet with potential adopters to ensure Buddy is placed in a responsible, loving home.


Thanks!

Mighty tree of paranormality
Stories abound about cottonwood
THE PARKS OF SUMMERBy: Adam Wazny

Rumour has it this giant cottonwood tree in Little Mountain Park is haunted. Photo Store
Winnipeg has more than 3,300 hectares of green space, made up of parks, gardens, trails, grasslands, forests, ponds and streams. Assiniboine Park, modelled after New York City's Central Park and home of the multimillion-dollar Journey to Churchill exhibit, gets most of the attention. But there are dozens of lesser-known parks throughout the city. In this summer series, Free Press reporters shine a light on some of these under-the-radar ecological gems.

On the northern boundary of Little Mountain Park, just south of Farmer Avenue in the RM of Rosser, a giant cottonwood tree stands tall.

The tree, which is more than a century old, is a majestic hunk of wood, its trunk as thick as a train. The branches stretch far up to the sky, reaching in every direction and creating a canopy that colours most elm-lined streets inside many of the old Winnipeg neighbourhoods green with envy.

The tree is a landmark, a postcard -- and might be haunted.

"It does have a reputation of being a place where paranormal activity exists, that's true," offered Tazz Norris, the lead investigator for the Winnipeg Paranormal Group (WPG). "And there are accounts of people seeing orbs and feeling ill at ease when in the presence of the tree. I'm just not sure its history holds up, though."

The sordid tale of the potentially evil tree reads like this: Back before the park was a park (the area was known as Mount Royal and Little Stony Mountain), the mighty cottonwood was rumoured to have been used as a lynching tree by the Ku Klux Klan.

However, before you ring the Ghostbusters, it should be pointed out there is no historical strength to support this claim. Norris and a handful of local paranormal aficionados say there is no concrete evidence the tree was used for this purpose -- even if the bark on some of the branches looks twisted.

Norris said the last time WPG took a look at the tree, in 2010, there was nothing out of the ordinary to report.

That doesn't mean one doesn't experience an eerie feeling when in its presence, though. There is something to this encounter -- maybe it's just the urban legend associated with it or the physical size of the tree itself -- that leaves one uneasy.

"I'm not saying it's not haunted," Norris said. "It could very well be, and the fact there is a lot of limestone in that area is something that we would consider notable."

The tree stands on a limestone ridge left by the Lake Agassiz glacier, a ridge that was developed as one of Winnipeg's first limestone quarries in 1896. There are still traces of that work around the site, and the quarry now serves as a pond for park visitors.

Limestone, according to popular paranormal theory, is an excellent recorder of past events. The rock holds the memory and energy of traumatic events, like a geological video camera, and has the ability to press play on that energy at certain moments when conditions are right.

"Places with large amounts of limestone or quartz, with the bedrock near the surface, tend to have some activity around them," Norris said.

Officially designated a civic green space in 1965, Little Mountain Park is located in the northwest corner of the city, tucked away behind Players golf course at Inkster Avenue and Brookside Boulevard. The 'maybe-haunted' tree and quarry are on the north edge of the 160-acre park, next to a large section of thick aspen forest.

Inside that forest, a network of wood-chipped trails is available for hikers and mountain bikers who wish to wind their way through the various small wildlife and forest floor vegetation. There are a handful of fire pits and picnic areas tucked away off some of the trails, as well.

Little Mountain also boasts one of the city's more popular off-leash dog areas, with a large section of grass set aside for canines on the western edge of the park along Klimpke Road.

PHOTOS BY JOHN WOODS / WINNIPEG FREE PRESS Enlarge Image

What started out as a leisurely Saturday morning stroll for Laura Carolan and her dog, Lex, ended with an emergency trip to the vet with a metal trap hanging from Lex's back paw.

Carolan said the trap was concealed in a grassy area of the bush near the river in Lagimodière-Gaboury Historic Park in St. Boniface, an area where she said children often play and ride bikes.

The trap, possibly for muskrat or beaver, clamped onto her dog's left hind foot, piercing a toe and puncturing the webbing between two toes.

"Who sets a trap in a public place? It's bad enough it was my dog, he came out of it OK, but what if that had been a child? Someone could have been seriously hurt," Carolan said.

"I was in shock. It feels like a bad dream, is this really happening? Is there a trap on my dog?"

Because her dog is a 150-pound Great Dane, he was able to withstand the crushing effects of the trap, but the two-year-old dog was in a lot of pain.

"The vet technician's husband came in to help us get the trap off. I was afraid his (Lex's) toe was going to break," Carolan said. "He was just yelping and I started bawling my eyes out. We were just out for a walk in a place that's supposed to be safe. You're not thinking there's a trap in the bush. It was just awful."

It took nearly two hours and cost about $300 to get the trap off at the Seven Oaks Veterinary Hospital. Now Lex is on pain medication and he's lost his favourite place to walk.

"We're not going back there, we don't know if there's others (traps) in there," she said. "The city should come in there and do a complete sweep of the area to make it safe again."

Carolan said she was walking Lex when he ran up ahead.

"He just ran over to this embankment near the river, there's trails down there, too, he'll run down there and come back up. He ran down there and just disappeared," Carolan said.

"We actually thought he took off. When we found him, he was in the original spot (where he ran down the embankment). He just froze as soon as the trap clamped onto his foot."

Carolan said a Good Samaritan that she's calling "my angel" -- a man she has regularly seen walking in the park -- helped her find Lex and get the dog into the man's van since her vehicle was too far away. After the man drove them to her vehicle, Carolan took Lex with the trap attached to his foot straight to the Seven Oaks Veterinary Hospital.

"The guy that was my angel, he had a vehicle right there. If he hadn't been there, my vehicle was about half a mile away. I don't know what I would have done," she said. "The trap was twisting and dragging and he (Lex) was yelping. It was so bad."

She said she contacted the Winnipeg Humane Society about the trap and reported it to the city's 311. The vet clinic will be contacting Manitoba Conservation on Tuesday to turn the trap over to them so they can try to trace the trap's serial number to an owner.

Over the course of the week the City has placed a good layer of the wood chips that were stored over in the West parking lot down along some of the trails. Over the winter this should compact nicely. Be warned of the dangers though. I received this on Facebook.

i thought i would bring this to as many ppls attention as possible to help prevent this..

While visiting Kilcona dog park today with my 2 dogs i was walking along the path by the church on the hill where the wood chips make up most of the path. my Siberian husky had a chip penetrate through her foot completely and had to be taken to the vet to have it surgically removed. 
Just a heads up to owners to avoid this path!!!

Northern Quarry
 
The Centreport contractor for the Water pumping station is back filling the Northern Quarry. It's R.M. land so there is not much that can be done. I've sent out e-mails and taken pictures. So much for the MMM plan to include the site in the park.

There have been a lot of e-mails going back and forth. Stop this now before it's to late!

Pick Up Sticks
 
Very cool department!

Maureen Flynn is writing a book which includes LMP . Set from 1929 till Present.

I am a writer and working on a mystery series that takes place in Winnipeg. The third in the series, Pick Up Sticks, includes your park in several scenes. http://maureenflynn.net/
They say that a ghost haunts the halls of the stately Winnipeg Hotel. Detective Steve Ascot is skeptical about that, but there's no question a dead body is lying in the elevator. Buckle My Shoe, Maureen Flynn's debut novel for Pemmican, weaves a mystery set among the streets of a Winnipeg you won't forget.
If you are interested in the characters who will be in the book you could pick up the first in the series, Buckle My Shoe. It is available at the library in Winnipeg or at McNally Robinson.

MMM Secondary Plan
 
We went to the MMM Secondary Plan open house last night at the Victoria Inn. They had incorporated a lot of our suggestions from previous meetings. Mostly our concern was the placement of the Centreport Highway which was to cut through the park. According to their designs now the park would gain the northern quarry area from the RM of Rosser. The Highway would skirt LMP on the Klimpke rd. side. The split the land between Mollard rd. and Farmer rd. then connect up to Chief Peguis trail at Route 90.A few thoughts with that. One, this is a four lane highway with expansion to six if needed, plus ditches, approaches to established road ways, water and hydro figuring into it. Will this plan call for the expropriation of all the homes that follow that route or remove land from the park? We'll see what happens at the Chief Peguis Trail meeting next Tuesday.
