Eggs-acting revenge on barking dogs
An angry tenant in a luxury condominium that backs up to the Park Slope dog run in New York’s Washington Park has been hurling eggs at dogs and owners who use the run at night, according to the New York Post.
“Before I knew it — ‘whack’ on my shoulder and ‘splat’ on the ground,” said Ilene Cohen, 55, who was hit by an egg three weeks ago. “I looked up, but I didn’t see anybody.”
Cohen said her black Labrador, Ace, wasn’t making any noise, but other dogs were barking at the time.
Kimberly Maier, the executive director of the Old Stone House, a historic center inside the park, said Cohen’s egging was the second of three aerial assaults, which were first reported by the website Brownstoner.com.
“It’s not a group of people doing it. It’s probably one person,” Maier said.
The condominium board has notified the local police precinct about the incidents, Maier said.
The 12-story luxury building known as Novo 343 opened less than two years ago — about the same time the dog run did.
