You are giving inaccurate information on your report.
It is NOT Mount Vernon. It is Mountain Creek in Vernon, NJ

I watched Eyewitness News everyday, 7 days a week (when I am home). Needless to say I am a big fan of yours! I was a quite disappointed to see one of the segments where you posted a picture of a dog, named 'Buddha' sent in from the viewer. It was a very insensitive & disrespectful to millions of Buddhists to call your dog 'Buddha'. It is the same principal that you named the dog 'Mohammad' or 'Jesus'. I felt that the Eyewitness team used a poor judgement to showcase this particular dog instead of the others! As a Buddhist I just want to voice my opinion and concerns so incident like this won't happen again!
