I’m writing this letter to the editor in regard to the leash law for dogs.
I feel I do not have the privilege of walking due to dogs chasing me and the fear of being attacked. It does not do any good to have laws if they are not enforced for the safety of our community.
I understand Hillsboro does not have a contract with animal control. If the law was enforced, fines would help support the system and eliminate problems with dogs running loose.
I’m asking the residents of Hillsboro to take a stand to protect their citizens from the risk of injury from dogs.
