Woman Says Town Of Acton Refused To Let Her Put Up “Lost Dog” Signs
ACTON (CBS) – Among the jumble of signs and sandwich boards along Route 27 in Acton, you won’t see one for Bridgett the missing Husky.
And that makes her owner frustrated.
“It makes me really angry and I don’t understand it,” says Pat Panek. “Frankly, I just can’t wrap my brain around it.”
Getting Bridgett back has been Panek’s mission since the six-year-old Siberian Husky bolted from her Littleton yard last November.
Panek maintains a Facebook page about Bridgett, and hands out detailed flyers, brochures, and business cards with information and photos about the dog.
And she’s getting results.
“It’s amazing,” she explains. “Once they’ve seen her picture or get some information, the calls come in.”
There have been close to 30 sightings so far, including one Friday morning. Panek has them all plotted on Google maps.
“This dog has been everywhere! But now she’s kind of near Pratt’s Brook Conservation land in Acton, so that’s really nice,” she says.
It would be nicer, Pat continues, if the town of Acton hadn’t forbidden her from putting up “Lost Dog” signage. Read More
