There's several irresponsible dog owners who deliberately allow their large Pitbulls to run, not only loose in their yards, but often, let them run loose OUT of their yards.
We even saw a young woman actually walking a large Male Pitbull off of Silver Lane, without ANY leash at all. The dog didn't have a collar on either, the aggressive pitbull actually ran across a wide street & came charging up to a disabled person walking their dog!

Now there's an owner on Holland Drive who's deliberately allowing their large Pitbull to run loose, in their yard, with no tie out chain or electric fence or regular fence to contain it either.
The other night that same Pitbull actually ran OUT of its yard & charged at another defenseless person walking their friendly dog.
Pitbulls are not safe or friendly dogs for the most part. Maybe some are nice, but the vast majority of Pitbulls are very dangerous to encounter, let alone get attacked by!

I see all these posters & photos too, on ASPCA about Pitbulls, like they're making them out to be totally innocent & SAFE dogs!
Oh come on now. So many people have actually been KILLED by a Pitbull.
A young 2 year old child was actually ATTACKED & KILLED in her own home a few years back by two of her family's Pitbulls!

Gosh, if you cannot trust you own dog to not attack you, if you own a Pitbull, how are you going to trust it to not attack a stranger, who's just walking down the street, minding their own business?
The same woman who owned the roaming Pitbull who deliberately ran out of its own yard, the other night on Sunset Estates, was actually INSISTING the dog just got out ACCIDENTALLY.
She then also INSISTED that the dog owner walking their own dog on a leash, NOT ever walk down their street again!
That's a violation of people's basic civil rights! You have a right to walk your dog on a leash down a public street!

That's happened numerous times too, to innocent dog owners in the town of East Hartford.
It's certainly NOT a safe nor a friendly town at all! Don't believe Mayor LeClerc when she says that! That's a lie! It's a dangerous & unsafe town to even take a basic walk in, let alone try to walk in your own backyard, or front yard, if you live next door to a Pitbull whose owners deliberately lets it run loose, without any fence or tie out chain on it!
Even these Electric Fences are not to be trusted either. We've seen numerous dogs just strolling out of their yard, if they have an electric fence in the yard!
The town of East Hartford is so corrupt & unethical, not to mention dangerous!
Beware of walking your dog in East Hartford, CT people!
We actually saw the same exact Pitbull running loose the next day, when their neighbor next door actually happens to be elderly too!
How safe is that? Living next door to a Pitbull whose owner constantly lets it run LOOSE in a yard that has NO fence to it, or no way to contain the dog from attacking someone?

The East Hartford dog warden is a lying piece of Crap. He's NOT saving your dog's life. He's putting your dog's life in danger on a constant basis by, continually refusing to enforce the State Anti-Roaming Dog Laws.
The Dog Warden will actually stalk & harass innocent disabled people who walk their dogs ON a leash & DO pick up their dog feces daily! Meanwhile those same dogs are being attacked on a constant basis by vicious dogs who run out of their yards, or are allowed to walk WITHOUT a leash at all, on a public street!
He's also made numerous false claims that you didn't pick up your dog's feces, when you do it daily too!
He'll come trespass on your property too, even if you've got a Private Property sign.

Don't walk in East Hartford is you value your dog's safety or your own! Make sure you have Pet Insurance before you DO come walking your pet in that town!
It's that dangerous now, to walk there! There's WAY too many irresponsible, unethical dog owners who just will REFUSE to follow basic State Anti-Roaming laws in East Hartford these days!

East Hartford is a scum area anyway, victim of the cancer from Hartford...amazing how it was able to jump the river while West Hartford has prevented the spread of Hartford cancer from claiming it.
