Distressed by dangerous dogs

I was deeply distressed to read the article about the attack on poor Lucy the springer spaniel by 3 pitbulls running loose on 45th and Wentworth earlier this summer. As a Kingfield neighbor and a frequent dog walker in the same area, I find it hard to believe that a vicious unprovoked attack like that upon another dog gets only a small fine and slap on the owner’s wrist by Animal Control.

Incidents such as this add to the stressful experience of not feeling safe in your own neighborhood and are not good for the morale of anyone, Kingfield residents and city officials alike. We ALL do our utmost to try and keep our urban neighborhoods safe, in all ways.  City officials, do your job. “Odie” should be euthanized.
