Ghost Dog–also known as “Bitey the Spirit Dawg”, “Prospero”, “Hermy”, and “Loch Ness Dog”–has been an elusive presence in Prospect Park for a few years now. A large, gentle creature that has long kept his distance, he’s been captured by New York City Animal Care and Control after a two-hour stakeout. Ghost Dog’s ultimate fate–and his real name–both have yet to be determined.
