Dennis Rottner is Mammoth's Go-Go Gadget Man in parks

June 6, 2011

This has been a bearcat of a spring for Dennis Rottner.

Things are all busted up all over town. Broken water pipes in the parks. Wrecked fences, debris from the hard winter all over the place. Snow in all the wrong places, high wind on all the wrong days.

And yet …

The town’s longtime superintendent of parks somehow, impossibly, got the Whitmore ball field ready for high school baseball and the Whitmore pool ready for the swim team.

This weekend, in spite of Mammoth’s tough winter and cold spring, the tennis courts at Community Center Park are to open.

Recent coyote killing of pet dog in Colorado not likely in Mammoth

June 6, 2011

BUT STILL, KEEP YOUR DOG CLOSE,
SAYS STEVE SEARLES
Everyone already knows to be careful of bears and mountain lions around Mammoth, but coyotes?

News that a coyote recently killed a very large dog right in front of its owner’s eyes recently in Colorado prompted the Times to talk to Mammoth’s wildlife expert, Steve Searles.

Searles was once employed by the Town of Mammoth Lakes as an animal control specialist when the town’s coyote population was several times what it is today.

“I’ve never heard of a coyote attacking a grown adult, but dogs, yes,” he said.
