COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Thousands enjoyed Columbus' touted downtown fireworks display last week, but it had some unfortunate consequences: Way more dogs than usual ended up at the animal shelter, likely frightened by the noise.
Beginning Wednesday with the city's Red, White and Boom celebration and running to Sunday, the county animal shelter took in 174 stray dogs. It usually takes in about 23 a day.
The Columbus Dispatch (http://bit.ly/1a7ethG ) reports that only 44 of the dogs have been claimed by their owners. Keeping them has put a strain on the shelter.
Susan Smith, community-relations manager for the shelter, says it happens every Fourth of July, but it was particularly bad this year. She noted that many suburbs had fireworks through the weekend, and lots of people shoot off their own.
