Accident Prevention

We recently had several cases where members or employees had their dogs in or around the Lodge premises that resulted in a biting incident.

To date, we have defended the Lodge in these cases and directed civil actions to the owner of the animal; however, the defense of the Lodge in these cases is an unnecessary expense. This situation should be avoided. I can think of almost no situation where a member or an employee should bring any pet on the Lodge premises, except in the case of a needed guide/assistance dog.
