Leash laws protect dogs, too
July 7, 2009
To the Editor:
Claude Diamond’s important letter to the editor on June 29 regarding the problems caused by unleashed dogs needs one addition:
Leash laws are also for the protection of the dogs. Many times, I have witnessed dogs running into highway traffic, causing near accidents as drivers tried to avoid them. Once, I saw a beautiful golden retriever dragging a loose leash run into traffic, where it was struck and instantly killed.
Dogs don’t deserve to die this way. Let’s try to enforce the leash laws.
