This morning just before 8 in Prospect Park. The occupants of the Parks Department truck evidently told the owners to leash up because they did so as it drove by slowly. I didn't stay around long enough to watch them unleash their dog again.

Some inconsiderate, irresponsible moron--why does this phrase come to mind so often when we are discussing people who let their dogs loose in public, particularly when they do so illegally?--this time let a pit bull--his brother's, not his own--loose next to the Hudson River, with predictable results. The FDNY should be charging him for the rescue.
