The new owners of a property that’s home to a pet cemetery, a pet store, and a flea market say they’ve been given permission to let their dog out to the public for a few hours after they were alerted by a neighborhood resident.
The property at 10th and Grand streets in St. Louis is owned by a company called Prospect Property Management, which also owns other properties, according to its website.
It’s also owned by the St. Charles Cemetery Association, which owns the cemetery at 14th and Pecos avenues.
Neighbors, who didn’t want to give their names, told KMOV that they didn’t notice any problems with the dog’s behavior until about a week ago.
The property manager says the dogs haven’t attacked anyone, and the owners said they have no concerns about their safety.KMOV spoke to the owners about the incident and their concerns for the animals.
The owners say the cemetery is well-known and well-used by dogs.
They said they’re working with the cemetery to make sure the cemetery doesn’t become a target for unwanted visitors.
Prospect Property Manager Jim Odom says he’s told the cemetery he will allow his dogs to roam around the property, but he doesn’t want any pets in the cemetery.
The cemetery has been a popular stop for people heading to the Mississippi River for decades.
It has also become a popular location for the Missouri-Kansas border.
