Joshua Tree National Park officials have rescinded their efforts to crack down on unpermitted service dogs at the park.
On Tuesday, officials said visitors wanting to bring their dogs into the park must have a legitimate service animals permit, citing the large number of dogs brought to the park as a reason and the possibility of exchanging diseases between wild animals and domestic dogs.
In a statement on Wednesday, park officials said, “The announcement concerning service dog permits was issued prematurely. Existing rules on pets and service animals remain in effect at Joshua Tree National Park. Please accept our apologies for the miscommunication.”
