Dogs will no longer be allowed on athletic fields owned by the city of Casper. The ban comes amid what city officials are calling a growing problem of dog owners not picking up after their pets. 
 
Casper Police Chief Chris Walsh formally announced the ban at a press conference on Wednesday morning. 
 
Dog owners who now take their pets onto ball fields may be cited for trespassing with a maximum of $750 in fines.
