Dog Owners at Fault

February 21, 1988

I was disturbed to see featured in your San Diego County Edition dogs romping on the beach unleashed. Then I read that a crowd sided with a teeth-baring large dog over the policeman defending himself. Finally, I was tide-pooling with my children at Cardiff State Beach this weekend and a dog, this time on a leash, was allowed by its owner to defecate in one of the pools.

Dogs don't belong on public beaches--leashed or unleashed. The dogs are not the problem--it's the owners! Allowing a protective large dog loose is unconscionable. Allowing a dog to defecate without scooping the poop is no less an offense.

When will human beings grow up and learn to take care of each other and the environment?
