In a snowshoe walk around Prospect Park lake early this afternoon we encountered five dogs, three of them unleashed.
And my friend told me this story. He was in Prospect Park this past August when he saw an unleashed dog, a pit bull he thought, harassing a horse. This went on for a while, with the dog owner calling to the dog, and eventually the horse threw the rider, a young woman. EMS was called to tend to the woman, and the cops were called, but whether they did anything but cluck sympathetically is unclear.
