Before it gets too cold, probably later this month, wildlife biologists working for the state will trap 100 to 120 dogs and move them -- all expenses paid -- to their new homes. The remaining dogs, an estimated sixty or so, will be moved sometime in the future.
Do state officials wish they could have done the same with the homeowners and business owners, some of whom put up quite a fuss about moving? Morales offers a laugh rather than a comment.
As for the dogs, she hopes they'll dig their new digs. After all, she says, "There's much less traffic noise."
