Anyone who dares think about hunting in Frick Park will now be greeted by bright, yellow “No Hunting” signs, which were recently posted in several areas throughout the park.
“There are numerous children, bicyclists, pedestrians and pets within the parks and hunting of any kind could lead to tragic results. The Departments of Public Safety and Parks and Recreation will enforce the city ordinance in an effort to protect park visitors,” said Public Safety Director Wendell Hissrich in a statement released on Tuesday.MORE NEWS: 'Nothing Beats It:' After A Year Of Going Virtual, The Great Race Returns To The Streets Of Pittsburgh
