GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (AP) - Grand Island officers have given a grandma some unsolicited advice about leashing her grandchild to a pole: Don’t.

The officers were sent to a motel around 4:30 p.m. Sunday after a 911 caller reported seeing the child on a leash there. The officers say the woman had safely attached the child leash to the pole so the child wouldn’t wander onto U.S. Highway 30 nearby. She didn’t want the 3-year-old to get hurt.

But Sgt. Tony Kuiper says the leash could have posed a problem had the child fallen or got snagged on something while not being supervised.

The officers told the woman that leashing the child to the pole just wasn’t as safe as she thought. They didn’t issue her a citation.
