   Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - March 10, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa                                6A The Cedar Rapids I Gazette: Sun., March 10, 1974 H's the Humane Thing To Do MIGHTY MARCH OF SAVINGS By Susan Welsh Humane Sodetv Auxiliary Once a dog or cat is let out of the house, as opposed to being taken out, he bocuaies a straying animal. It is a fact that most of the dogs roaming tho streets are not strays, but owned pets straying. Any pet owner who allows his animal to run loose is not only .mistreating his pet, he is break- ing the law in areas that have leash laws. He also is showing a complete disregard and disre- sped for his neighbors and resi- dents of his community. The dog or cat that is given his "freedom" to run at large is not a happy pet, contrary to many pet owners' beliefs. By stating that, an owner is merely trying to justify inconsiderate behavior and lack of care for his animal and the rights of his neighbors. Our pets are animals and therefore will behave as such. They will fight with one an- other, causing injuries to them- selves and contact or transmit disease. They will breed un- wanted litters which will have to be disposed of. Being used to people, they may be friendly to- ward strangers who may be collecting dogs and cats to be sold for experimental purposes. The straying pet is subject to severe illness, painful injury and death from investing rat poison and insecticides or by being hit by a car. Animals have no sense of civic responsibility, therefore the straying pet cannot be blamed for traveling up and down the street, ripping open trash bags and littering garbage about on collection days. He does not realize that the neigh- bors across the street do not wish to have the lawn soiled or 'the shrubbery and flowers ruined by his running through them or digging. Yet his owner have a sense of civic re- sponsibility and wouldn't dream of doing these things himself or allowing one of his children to do them. Besides doing injury to him- self in traffic, the straying pet is the cause of ;many traffic ac- cidents. He becomes an unex- pected obstacle in the streets and as many drivers will try to avoid hitting an animal, they may cause another type of collision by doing so. The formation of dog packs is another hazard. City dogs do form packs because they are dogs and the dog is a pack animal. These packs terrorize people, bite, chase cars and bicycles and cause damage, to property. Within the past two weeks there have been news items regarding the problems the stray dogs or straying dogs are causing in Iowa towns. With spring coming, we will no doubt be seeing an increase in the number of pets running loose. It is time to place the blame where it belongs. Don't blame the pet who has been given the run of the streets, for he did not make this decision. The respon- sible party is, of course, the per- son who owns the animal. Be a good citizen and a good pet owner keep your pet con- fined.

Big Geothermal Plant Growing SAN FRANCISCO (AP) The Geysers installation of the Pacific Gas and Electric company, became the largest geoth.ermal generating plant in the world this winter when units 9 and 10 started operat- ing. They bring the Geysers' capacity to kilowatts, surpassing a plant in Italy. Further expansion is un- derway. Construction of unit 11 has started. That of unit 12 is awaiting authorization by the Public Utilities commis- sion. Authorization for unit 14 has been requested, and that for unit 13 is being planned. With all these units in operation, hopefully by 1976, total capacity will be kilowatts.
