Bereaved Coloradans told they may have to rebury their pets

Owners who buried their pets at the Denver Pet Cemetery in Commerce City will have to pay hundreds of dollars to move the remains if a new owner finds a new use for the property. KUSA-TV reports (http://on9news.tv/1EaO2su ) that cemetery owner Tom Hart broke the news to concerned clients Tuesday that he is selling the property and the new owner could repurpose the land. Other pet cemeteries in the area are already jumping on the opportunity. One has begun distributing fliers advertising a special rate for Denver Pet Cemetery clients: $345 for a single re-internment. Though Hart said he is advertising the property as a pet cemetery while trying to sell, the land is zoned C3, making it available for commercial use.

This story out of the AP is actually kinda big out here in the greater Denver area.  Commerce City is an industrial town just north of Aurora.  This is awful.  Glad I had my last two dogs cremated..
