Off-leash walking poses new dangers

I just read this article about a northern California man walking two small dogs off-leash who was hit with an electric-shock gun (apparently this is the most current public relations speak for a stun-gun) by a National Park Service ranger.

The place where it happened, an area south of San Francisco, has long been an off-leash walking spot for local dog owners. In December, the area became part of the national park system, which requires that all dogs be on a leash and it seems that when the ranger tried to inform the dog walker of the new rules, well, things just got out of control.

Sometimes its so hard for me to follow the rules when they seem silly, this was a great reality check for me – being a good dog owner means going along with social and legal constraints.
