Canine laws must be made and obeyed

Dear Editor: Recently my dog was attacked by a pit bull in Washington Park in Union City. She sustained a severe injury but survives. After the attack, the young men responsible for his dog’s attack, just walked away. He gave me no information on the dog’s vaccination history, license and ownership. He appeared to be around 16 years of age and was unable to handle his powerful and aggressive pit bull. As the saying goes, punish the deed, not the breed. I have asked Freeholder Brian Stack of Union City First to take action; specifically make sure that leashing and licensing laws are enforced, especially in our parks. I call upon all citizens in our community to communicate your concerns to you local leaders. And I call upon all dog owners to act responsibly and comply with dog regulations. Raven Anthony Squire
