Irresponsible dog owners should have their dogs impounded

It amazes me how many people, adults, who blatantly ignore signs

The Rotary Waterfront Park is a showcase and keeps being abused by irresponsible dog owners. I was walking my dog on a leash when a loose dog  aggressively  came after  my dog. I chased it away and the owner called it back.

What is sad is that this happened not more than 15 feet from the sign that states dogs should be leashed.

The owner never apologized for her dogs’ behaviour and just drove away.

The City goes to great lengths to keep this area clean and provides bags to pick up after your pets.

Often I have seen where dogs have done their business and the owners have not cleaned up. I noticed some owners just sit in their vehicles and let the dog run loose.

These people are not loving pet owners.  A pet is a companion and should be treated as such, not just have the vehicle door opened for them and let loose to run and do their business.
