Animal Control looks to protect animals during Outside Lands 

If you spent part of a weekend back in August trying to sneak into the Outside Lands Festival, you should be grateful: at least you weren’t an animal trying to sneak out.

Miles of fences are erected for the annual concert in Golden Gate Park. The goal is to force people to pay entry — but a side effect is it traps animals who are used to having free reign in the park, but suddenly find themselves drowning in noise and drunk human beings and unable to reach their normal sources of food and water.

The City’s Animal Welfare and Control Commission will hear an update of efforts made to protect trapped wildlife and feral cats during this year’s concert on Thursday afternoon.
