The problem of straying dogs in Castlebar and other areas of Mayo has been somewhat eased in recent years following the appointment of a dog warden by Mayo County Council.
In the past "distemper," a disease common amongst dogs, created problems for their owners. When I was a young fellow a dog owned by one of my neighbours suffered from this disease. Many suggestions were put forward in an attempt to cure the unfortunate animal, but all were unsuccessful.
