The New Canaan Lakeview Cemetery is dealing with an issue currently in collaboration with the Police and Animal Control Departments currently that has led to the banning of all pets from the grounds.
According to AC Officer Mary Ann Kleinschmitt,
notices have been posted warning visitors of the new, stricter pet
regulations after pet owners continually allowed animals to relieve
themselves on the headstones and grave sites on the grounds without ever
picking up after the fact.
Kleinschmitt said the
department would be watching for residents who weren't abiding by the
new pet ban and issuing tickets, possibly even for trespassing if the
situation warranted further charges.
