Be aware: there are reports that a man – believed to have mental health issues – has recently been engaged in behavior that was deliberately startling and/or perceived to be threatening to dogs – i.e., leaping from behind brush and bushes – and then videotaping the animals’ reactions. The plan, apparently, is/was to present the dogs as ‘attackers’ to local DCR personnel and possibly local police.

A call to the Framingham Police Department this evening indicates that they have been made aware of the situation and that “it has been addressed”.

This kind of provocative behavior is unlawful.  Should you experience or witness such unlawful behavior, call the  Framingham Police Department @ 508- 872-1212 (of course, in a real emergency, call 911).
