Henry County temporarily closes dog parks

HENRY COUNTY, Ga. Henry County officials have temporarily closed two dog parks due to a spike in dog flu cases.

The Mt. Carmel Bark Park, which is located in Hampton, and a dog park at Alexander Park in McDonough will be closed for the next 30 days as a preventative measure against the dog flu, which has affected several surrounding counties.

If no cases of canine influenza are reported after 30 days, the parks will reopen.
