Crackdown on unleashed dogs in Riverside
Just a quick word of warning for those who take their dogs to Riverside Park in South Baltimore.
Police and animal control officers were at the park today, prepared to dispense some of the city’s new $1,000 citations for violation of the leash law, according to our sources.
The same newly increased penalty applies to owners who fail to pick up their dog’s waste.
Crackdowns usually take place when the weather gets nice, and, thanks to the city council, they now carry a much higher price tag. So, no matter which city park you and your dog visit, watch your step — in every meaning of the phrase.
