Unleashed dogs a threat

Dear Editor:

What a pity that people feel that they can leave their dogs off the leash on public property. Don’t they know that the key word is hiking trail, not dog run? Many of us do like dogs, but some are afraid as large dogs come running down while snarling.

There are many small children on the trail; would you like it if one was knocked down or bitten? And as for the poop, why don’t you let your dog go on your lawn? Then you wouldn’t have to pick it up.
