Woman summonsed after dog chases plover

SCARBOROUGH (WGME) -- Police mean business when it comes to protecting plovers along beaches in Scarborough.

Police say a dog chased one of the federally protected birds on a restricted area of Higgins Beach. The 34-year-old owner is summonsed and facing a $100 fine.
 
Last summer, a dog killed a plover on Pine Point Beach, leading to a controversial ban on leash-free dogs at the town's beaches.
   
The town also faced federal fines for the bird's death as well.
