Wait a moment, the residents of Palo Alto passed a leach law in the early 1960s. I don't think the voters, at that time, passed an ordinance saying all dogs should be on a leach with the exception of those running loose in Greer Park. To comply with the ordinance, the area designated as a dog run, must be fenced off.

From someone who was attacked and bitten by a dog in Mitchell Park I am very much in favor of Palo Alto's leach law, and I don't think any dogs should be permitted to run loose anywhere in the City. We should comply with the existing leach law or put it to the voters of Palo Alto again.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
