Lovely night over at the Fish and Game pond. Good to see lots of people from Morinville getting their exercise in such a beautiful place; however, one person thought allowing her three dogs to be off leash was a way to enjoy the evening.
As far as I know there are no off leash parks in Morinville, yet when out walking my dogs on leash I often see people allowing their dogs to run around, pooping and peeing. The park area by the lake set off warning bells for me as kids are there riding bikes and not really paying complete attention. There are often geese, muskrats and gophers. This is not a good situation for other dog owners or for the dog owner who allows their pets off leash. The main highway is right there.
Even the owner who claims their dogs are well behaved can never be sure of every outcome. I personally respect the leash laws and scooping laws, yet I am left to ask the question – does this law only apply to me?
Sadly this ruined a peaceful outing for me, witnessing this disrespect again.
