To all of you who enjoy this beautiful town's outdoor treasures by biking, hiking, walking the dog, surfing, or just strolling the beach: How many times have you been forced to go another way, or have your pet attacked by an off-leash aggressive dog, or been screamed at by some disrespectful punks for commenting about the leash law ?
There was a severe example of this recently at Mori Point. A woman walking her dog on leash was accosted by four young thugs who screamed obscenities at her, threatened her small dog with their large off-leash pit bull, and laughed at this woman's terror.
After I intervened, which caused them to turn their wrath away from the woman and onto me, she had a chance to escape down the stairs. These punks came after me, forcing me to back down the trail and run for safety.
Rather than confront such bullies, call Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA) and report these situations. The direct line to the park ranger dispatch line is 415-561-5505. The ranger in charge of our area is Officer Durham and his direct line is 415-561-5190.
Instead of risking your life and your pet's life, call these numbers and report what is going on. Try safely to get good descriptions or pictures so we can help make our town safer for all of us.
