Escaped or abandoned? Live trap set for labrador dog in france

Escaped or abandoned? Live trap set for labrador dog in france

For eight weeks, a brown labrador dog roamed through the counties of forchheim, erlangen-hochstadt and the city of erlangen – looking for her home. Now andrea schopfel’s franken dog rescue team and christoph reh, chief superintendent of the uttenreuth police station, were able to secure the dog’s needle in erlangen near the parade ground. They brought the animal to the erlangen animal shelter. It is considered lost property: the dog is chipped but not registered, so that the owner could not be determined until now. A search report was also not received in the past weeks. This leaves only two possibilities. "Either the labrador comes from very far away or the owner wanted to get rid of the dog", explains christoph reh, the animal protection officer of the erlangen-land police department, who was present at the security operation on saturday. Capturing this was almost as adventurous as the odyssey of the female dog. "It was the connen of the search dog team. He worked tirelessly 24 hours a day, seven days a week", praises the work of schopfel and her animal welfare volunteers.

On the road since february

As early as february, andrea schopfel had been asked to help in the search for the labrador, which was still on the loose in the grafenberg area at the time. The dog was trusting. However, she did not accept the food provided. And as soon as you reached out for it, it ran away. "No dog likes to be alone outside and fight for survival", says andrea schopfel from gunzenhausen, who took over here. After the reported sightings, she made a map to follow the route of the labrador. At that time the dog was already on the move in igensdorf and the area around neunkirchen am brand. Eventually she ran further and further in the direction of bubenreuth and erlangen. The map shows that the labrador spent most of its time there. Nevertheless, the often up to 25 messages per day of the supporters caused some confusion. "For a while we thought there were two labradors on the way", says, tells andrea schopfel. Because at the same time the animal welfare officer received sighting reports from grafenberg and erlangen. Andrea schmidt and ines becker then set up feeding stations at the places where the dog was seen most often. These were videouberwacht. The two employees from erlangen visited seven sites every day and stocked them with treats. But the labrador did not seem to be hungry, many burghers set up feeding stations along the dog’s route or tried to catch him themselves. The well-intentioned behavior was counterproductive for the safety of the dog. "Nadja then distributed flyers and asked people to leave the dog alone so that it could be secured", explains schopfel. Because of the attempts to catch her, the dog ran onto the straw, which she usually avoided. That the dog would fall victim to traffic was one of the major concerns of schopfel and reh.

All hunters informed

Christoph reh informed all hunters along the route. In the end, the video recordings at the feeding station at the parade ground showed success. Not only birds, martens, hedgehogs and foxes took the steak or the cooked ham, but also the labrador they were looking for. Everyone involved knew: it had to be done quickly to be able to place the live trap there. To do this, the animal protectors needed a permit from the city, which owns the place. This was impossible on friday at 2 p.M. Time ran out for the animal lovers, and so did the dog. "I have tried for three hours to reach a responsible person. The 13. Call brought the solution. The 14. Call would have been the mobile number of oberburgermeister florian janik. I must have had to stop him while he was eating dinner", tells reh. Only with the support of the two erlanger city council members jorg volleth and helmut wening and his colleague tobias nagel was it possible to make contact with the responsible parties and obtain permission to set the live trap, reh reports.

Construction of the daycare center at herzo base will be more expensive

Construction of the daycare center at herzo base will be more expensive

The apparently good economic situation in the construction sector also has its disadvantages. And these have an impact on prices. Because the companies offering favorable rates were all booked up. This was explained by architect erich popp at the meeting of the main and finance committee on thursday evening.

Concrete example: the construction of the new daycare center at herzo base. A whopping 13 to 14 percent increase in costs had to be accepted, popp explained. And this is not only due to increased prices for the procurement of materials. Above all, the ratio between favorable and somewhat more expensive companies is no longer correct. For averaging is hardly possible at the moment, because the favorable suppliers are currently occupied with orders. So the high-priced bidders were left over.

At the moment, planners are assuming that the originally calculated total cost of 2.39 million euros for the kindergarten at herzo base will increase to about 2.75 million euros. However, the far larger chunks have already been allocated. Just under 300,000 euros in orders are still outstanding, explained gerhard merkel, head of the construction office.

New tree – new marketplace?

New tree - new marketplace?

The uncertain future of the marketplace lime tree prompted mayor bruno gamm (UW) to consider redesigning the marketplace in ei-nersheim. Landscape planner thomas wirth presented five conceptual models to the council on wednesday, which are now to be explored in greater depth in a workshop together with burgers.

Due to dead branches and the resulting safety reasons, the community has had its distinctive marketplace lime tree cut back significantly. We are currently waiting to see whether and to what extent the lime tree will be green again. Gamm, however, already expects that the tree, which dominates the townscape, will have to be removed.
The simplest solution from the point of view of the planning office would be arc.Grun a new planting. Since the pavement also had to be renewed, the tree and fountain could be moved to the street without affecting the parking spaces.

The view of the town hall would change significantly if solution two, with the planting of many small trees, came to fruition. They were allowed to sit in the shade and move the fountain back to its historically buried old location. "We love to create a place for small events", wirth suggested.

Future of the railroads: industry agrees on “rail pact

Future of the railroads: industry agrees on 'rail pact

In the future, rail customers should be able to reach their destinations faster and more easily, and trains should be more frequent – and more good passengers should be transferred from road to rail.

These are rough targets named in a “rail pact” between politics and industry. But the road ahead is still long. After two years of work, politicians, unions, railroad companies and associations signed the “roadmap” for the future of rail in the federal ministry of transport. Transport minister andreas scheuer (CSU) said rail could become the number one traffic carrier. By 2030, twice as many people are to travel by the more climate-friendly railroad than before.

The central element of the pact is the “deutschlandtakt” – which, however, has already been in the works for a long time. Today, anyone who wants to take the ICE from berlin to poland on weekdays or weekends has the opportunity to do so once every hour – in the future, there will be a train every half hour. The first step in this cycle will be taken as early as december on the rail paradise route from berlin to hamburg – a year ahead of the original schedule. Connections to regional transport are also to be better coordinated to make it easier to change trains.

Smoked, smoked and smoked again

Smoked, smoked and smoked again

After the urban land use planning, rodelsee’s mayor burkhard klein devoted himself in detail to the issues in the community. 14 pieces were the ones he was trying to clear out. "Please stop this kind of nonsense.", pleaded the mayor.

Rumor one: rodelsee said to be the most indebted municipality in the county. Klein, on the other hand, said that the peak in 2005 was 3.8 million euros. To the 31. December 2018 it was only 845,000 euros. That is 484 euros per inhabitant. The national average is 606 euros.

Smell two: municipality has not received money to rehabilitate schlossberg roads. On 20. November 2018, 727 757.43 euros had been deposited in the municipality’s account. The roads and footpaths must be completely renewed by 2020.
