Reader's View: Duluth's leash law needs to be followed

I am writing this to all animal owners in the Twin Ports area. The city of Duluth has a leash law requiring owners to have their pets on leashes at all times while on public property.

Denfeld’s 1947 boys basketball team is the only Denfeld basketball team to win a state title. The team’s head coach was Lloyd Holm. Team members were Rudy Monson, Larry Tessier, Paul Nace, Kenneth Sunnarborg, Eugene Norlander, Howard Tucker, Tony Skull, Jerry Walczak, Bruce Budge, Keith Stolen and student manager Bob Scott.

I currently am a dog owner who uses the Lester Park trail system as well as the Lakewalk for daily walks. A couple weeks ago I encountered a loose dog in Lester Park that caused an altercation that resulted in elbow surgery after I tried to pull apart more than 100 pounds of dogs. Thankfully, no animals were injured; only my attendance record at work was damaged.

I just returned from a short trip on the Lakewalk and witnessed an individual at the 60th Avenue East crossing with a dog freely bounding on and off the Lakewalk. Really? Not all dogs welcome the sometimes-intimidating charge of an unleashed dog. Please think of the others you may meet.
