Foster City Wants Crackdown On Dog Park Rule-Breakers
FOSTER CITY (AP) — Officials in Foster City are considering cracking down on dog owners who bring too many dogs to the city’s dog park.
The city’s Parks and Recreation Committee is expected to vote Wednesday whether to recommend to the City Council the passage of an ordinance that would limit pet owners to taking three dogs each to the off-leash dog park.
The San Mateo County Times says the proposed ordinance comes after in incident in August when a 69-year-old Foster City woman and a 37-year-old South San Francisco became involved in a physical altercation at the dog park.
A few weeks before that incident, a man was bitten by his own dog while trying to separate it from another dog.
The head of Foster City’s Parks and Recreation Department says the new rules are being considered because a small number of people have been breaking the rules the dog park.
