City of Lethbridge Warns Pet Owners to be Careful Around Lake Ice

Pet owners are encouraged to keep dogs on a leash and if your pet does happen to get loose on the ice, do not attempt to rescue it

Lethbridge pet owners are urged to keep their pets on a leash when they're near ice-covered water.

The City of Lethbridge and local Fire & Emergency Services say if your pet does happen to get loose on the ice do not attempt to rescue it. Instead, try coax it back to the shore and call 911 immediately if the animal falls through the ice.

The only ice that is monitored is at Nicholas Sheran, Henderson and Chinook Lakes, all of which are unsafe at this time.

Residents are also reminded that using storm pond ice is prohibited.
