I was severely bitten by a dog in September and had to go to the hospital twice. The people who own this dog have it both on a leash and enclosed in a fence at this time.
However, I am now being chased on my daily walk by two more dogs. I have emptied two canisters of spray and have gotten no response from the owner of the worst of these.
Why isn’t there a leash law in Marion County? I called the sheriff’s department and was informed there is none.
A citizen should be able to walk for their health without the fear of being attacked. What is a person to do? After all, they are the ones who pay taxes!
Why doesn’t someone we elect to office do something about this?
