Re: Dogs running free in my neighborhood.
you did the right thing. as stated, there are leash laws.... and I have seen firsthand what can happen when a dog runs out in the road in front of bikes... it's not pretty and the homeowner doesn't like the bill they get for "just a bike"... much less the hospital bill that they have to pay since they are responsible for the animal...
not the animal's fault... completely on the owner. So, you did right by calling animal control, especially in a neighborhood.
