At 11:30 A.M. on Sunday there was a dog owner on the Nethermead Meadow running his retriever off-leash. I watched Parks Enforcement Patrol vehicle #414, license plate L-87495 stop at the north end of the meadow and the officers motion to the dog owner. The owner leashed his dog and walked over to the patrol car. I was not completely surprised that the officers DID NOT issue a summons, but instead gave the dog owner a pamphlet with the rules and maps. If the dog owner was unaware of the rules (which he likely claimed) than why did he leash his dog when he saw the patrol car? I'm guessing that the PEP officers didn't want to take the time to write out the summons. Isn't that their job?
