I am an animal lover, particularly dogs, and am very happy to see residents and visitors taking advantage of Prescott’s wonderful trails and city streets with their dogs. Unfortunately my dog and I have been attacked three times in a little over two years by dogs being walked on leash but not controlled. In the first instance my dog was killed and in all three attacks, I was injured. Fortunately this morning’s attack on the Constellation Trail resulted in no injuries to my dog and only bruises to me. I would remind dog owners to not only have the proper leash equipment, but please, have a firm grip on the leash!
