Aspen considers small-dog run

Aspen Times Staff Report
Aspen, CO Colorado

ASPEN ” A group of Aspenites want the city to establish a “small-dog run” at Koch Lumber Park, as a way to keep their tiny pets out of the mouths of larger canines.

Susan O’Neal of Aspen, who owns a small dog, submitted what she said was a six-page petition to the City Council at its regular meeting June 9.

She said her dog was attacked by a large dog last year, and other residents related stories of similar attacks by large dogs and coyotes. She requested that the city set up a green, plastic, removable fence for summertime use only and for use only by dogs that weigh 20 pounds or less.

O’Neal also volunteered herself and other small-dog owners to keep the park clean by picking up after the animals.

The Aspen City Council agreed to look into the matter.
