Come back later or next day, but give your canine a chance to calm down, off site. Before you leave, check your dog and speak to owners of other dogs involved to be sure there are no injuries. If injury occurs, file an Incident Report immediately with the Department of Planning and Parks or the St. Louis County Police Department - Wildwood Precinct, if after normal business hours.
