The city of Albuquerque’s plan to shoot fireworks from Los Altos Golf Course on Saturday night has earned howls of disapproval from animal advocates worried about the dogs and cats at the neighboring eastside shelter.
After receiving “significant feedback” Sunday and Monday, the Parks and Recreation Department dropped the Los Altos Golf Course site and instead will have that fireworks display at Manzano Mesa Park, 501 Elizabeth SE.
“We have heard the concerns about having fireworks at the Los Altos Golf Course and its proximity to the Eastside Animal Shelter. We are listening to the feedback and moving the display to another area in the Southeast quadrant,” Parks and Recreation Director Dave Simon said in a news release.
