Animal-control officers in Cobb County have cited tow women for having their dogs off leashes–even though the women were in a park created specifically to let dogs off leashes. When Cobb opend an off-leash dog park last month, it seems, officials didn’t take the county’s leash law into account.
“It’s ludicrous to say it’s off-leash and to give people tickes for having them off the leash,” said Clare Salkin, who was ticketed for violating the law. She has a court date in about three weeks for unleashing Bob, her Labrador-mix.
The county says it has stopped enforcing the leash law in the park. It plans to clarify its ordinances to make it legal for people to unleash dogs in the park, said a county spokesman.
