The Peninsula and Scottish Terriers

Prospect Park this morning was cold and gray enough that the peninsula meadow was empty of dogs, so we took the opportunity to take a stroll across it. As we reported last week about the Nethermead, it is now a mass of ankle-breaking potholes, the product of dogs digging. So like the Nethermead, thanks to the city's misguided off-leash policy, come spring the peninsula meadow will also be effectively off-limits to soccer and frisbee players .

In the peninsula woods, most of the fences were down. And we saw a large unleashed brown dog there; but, as we reported before, that now seems to be legal.

And today we discovered a post by someone who doesn't like the idea of our reporting illegal "off-leash" activity.

Believe us: we don't either, but we see no alternative.
