STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - The City of Starkville is closing its dog park temporarily.
The facility at Moncrief Park closed today due to a Parvo outbreak.
Parvo causes severe illness and is highly contagious.
It spreads through direct contact with an infected dog or by indirect contact with a contaminated object.
The park will remain closed through the weekend for cleaning.
The Starkville Parks and Recreation Department will issue an update on the dog park on Monday.
