Glen Rock NJ, Glen Rock Police Department: As Humans expand their living areas and Fox expand their range, contact between the two is inevitable. Most of the time, Fox go out of their way to avoid humans. In urban areas the Fox are changing their behavior because of human behavior.

The most serious problem is that the animals have become very use to people because they find food left on our properties. As they lose their fear of people they will approach people looking for more food, and may put themselves in hazardous situations that they would normally avoid. That means close garbage cans lids tightly, do not leave any food outside.

the Fly spy’s Ridgewood Councilman at Glen Rock Pride Event

the fly has noticed Ridgewood councilman, who left the Ridgewood Pride event very soon after it began (and long before the flag was raised on the new pole) , went to the Glen Rock Pride event where he was photographed in a bromance embrace with Hans Lehman, husband of Jan Philips.  So nice that this elected official is more interested in the event at another town than the one he swore to represent.

Reader Comments On Night Time Solicitations in Glen Rock

” No permits should be issued by police to allow people to be bothered in their own homes. I would jump a mile if my doorbell rang after 8 PM when I wasn’t expecting anyone. I would not respond, but then there’s the chance that your house is being cased to see if anyone is home, so supposedly you’re better off yelling “No thanks!” Why should the burden fall on a person in his or her own home? All such permit requests should be denied, including political movements and fundraising. I believe this will eventually happen and I hope it’s not because of some awful incident. Sorry, but it’s a new world and the sanctity of the privacy of one’s home must be respected. Fundraising efforts should be directed elsewhere. “
