Unleashed dogs causing peril in Frick Park

I love Pittsburgh’s city parks and consider them one of her crown jewels. However, Frick Park is no longer safe for me to visit. Why? Because so many dog owners cannot control their own dog when it is off leash.

I go to Frick Park to walk my leashed dog. I find dogs roaming freely, often charging up to walkers, runners, baby strollers, bicyclists and other dogs. Not everyone at the park welcomes the visit of an off-leash animal. Even a friendly house pet can be aggressive.

Yes, “Leniency Lives” (June 17 editorial) with dogs off leash and unable to be controlled in Frick Park. But kind words and education have not stopped an increasingly dangerous situation.
