Letter: Beware of Lucy

Beware of Lucy

Ms. Grossman tries to justify the behavior of her dog by calling the barking and growling as a form of communication. (“Listen to the dogs,” letters, April 2, The Aspen Times). That type of “communication” coming from Ms. Grossman’s beagle called Lucy should be considered an immediate threat.

If you encounter Lucy being aggressive, protect yourself. Lucy attacked me unprovoked while on a leash, as I walked by on a sidewalk, under Ms. Grossman’s control. Lucy gave me a trip to the hospital and caused considerable pain. It is sad to hear that the dog is still causing problems in our community. If you feel threatened by any dog, call animal control and report the incident.
