Caution: A Smoker in the Park

Smoking is of course illegal in the park.  At this time when, despite the little bit of rain we had last week, the grass and other vegetation in the park is tinder dry, you would think that people would avoid carrying lighted material in the park even if it weren’t illegal.  However, yesterday I found a cigarette butt on the ground near the dog park, and this morning I found another one of the same brand — Camel filters — on the ground near the Burrowing Owl preserve.  I’m cc’ing a copy of this post to the Berkeley Fire Department in the hope that they can send someone to observe, educate, and if necessary apprehend the person responsible before the park goes up in smoke.
