I love dog parks and yes they have rules and regs for a very good reason. I do feel for the man that was injured. I pray for his speedy recovery. But in dog 101, the rule is you never put yourself in a position to break up a dog fight. Things like this are bound to happen. And no, you never know what sparks this type of behaviour in any pet. Good or bad. I have, myself, been to one many times in York and only a couple of times did I see very well behaved dogs get cranky where the owners had to take the dogs out. Like anything, you must be vigulant and know that this can and will happen. With that being said, I am still a fan of the dog parks, where a dog can be a dog.

The best way to make dogparks safer is to put an electronic card reader at the entrance and charge a fee.

This will raise money and also make the park safer.

Owners are much more observant when they know they can not run off anonymously after their dog has caused a serious problem.

Anything short of that and you are just whistling dixie.

I agree with Jackie any owner or person knows or should know you never put yourself in the middle of a dog fight, even a good dog may be protecting there self and the human will get hurt.

And also with WRZ you can make all the rules you want but as long as a free park (and all the rules are self explainatory) you are just blowing air in the wind because people are well "dogs" if there going to be and if there not doing it now a rule will not make them do it.

Put up a sign saying you are responsible and liable for your dog and all that goes with that... and that says it all.

COM! That's a riot! They'll need Lamar Advertising to come down and put up a billboard to post those rules. And five days in the hospital? They do heart bypasses and the people are out sooner than that. A dog park, another stupid idea from government people who have too much time and too much of our money in their hands.

the dog that was the agressor in the fight was a boxer mix.... not a pit bull... you can train a chiuaua to attack... and i know agressive people too... it is about how you are raised....
