Calling all pets

by

Bring your rope and plastic baggies when you take Fido to the park tomorrow. Boise Police are out in force Tuesday morning to crack down on leash law violators in the parks.

Boise Police Sgt. Paul Burch: "Citizens complain that dogs running loose threatens the safety of children playing. Citizens also complain when they see dog waste in a park. Boise parks are clearly marked as to what the rules are for dogs. We want everyone to be aware of those rules, and to let folks know there can be consequences when they chose not to follow those rules."

There are places in town where dogs can run free. But if you are caught without collar in the wrong place, your master may get a $25 ticket, plus court costs.
