A sign in a local park states: No Domestic Animals. So, bring your lions, tigers and bears but leave those ferrets at home.

I wonder what prompted the wording. Do people really bring anything besides dogs into public parks? In an effort to be all-encompassing, the policymakers have muddied their message and left the regulation open to more interpretation.

If you mean “no dogs” just say that plainly. Don’t try to make a simple message more complex than it needs to be.
