The Dog Park pond is off limits to humans. But that didn't stop these children from jumping into the pond for an afternoon swim.

KEEL News has learned a woman dropped the children off at the park at about 5pm Wednesday night and didn't come back to pick them until about an hour later.

One witness posted this to social media:

"Had to call police. Woman left 5 kids younger than 13, they were swimming and threatened other people and dogs. Drug a puppy to the middle of the pond by his feet and tried to grab mine. Mother didn't come back till an hour later."

Police arrived a few minutes later and told the children to get out of the water. They also waited on the mother to return.
