RE­THINK CALL FOR LEASHES

Hills Gazette - - OPINION -

RE “Call for tighter leash on own­ers”, Gazette, Septem­ber 29.

I have lived in Glen For­rest for more than 25 years and am now on my third res­cue dog.

I rarely have them on a leash as the dogs en­joy sniff­ing around the parks and the walk­ing trail.

I do feel sorry for the lady who had her hip done but it was her dogs that tripped her over.

I see dogs be­ing dragged as the owner is too busy to al­low the dog to sniff or meet other dogs.

Dogs are pack an­i­mals and en­joy meet­ing other dogs.

I would sug­gest we stop the idiots on bikes who think the Rail­way Re­serves Her­itage Trail is a race track, but that would be in­fring­ing on their free­dom as is leash­ing our dogs.
