Vicious dogs roaming streets,
ould bite someone badly
I hate to complain, so it is with a sad heart that I write this letter. I can remember five times when I was accosted and, once, bitten by dogs recently.
I am a big, tough man, and I can even handle rabies shots, but some little girl or a woman out walking or bicycling? That would be major trauma.
I will leave righteous anger for those more qualified to handle it.
Those are public roads paid for by the taxpayers. In my complex, I went for the mail, a giant vicious dog almost bit me. All I could do both times he ran toward me was stand still and hope for the best.
A dog bit me while I was on a country road. He bit the boot, leg warmers and toe warmers, but did not pierce the flesh. His owner lives right on the borderline between the county and the Village of Los Lunas.
A giant black dog accosted me right by a school. What do the school kids do as they pass?
Another vicious dog is by the prison. A really sneaky one out on a country road stopped and turned back just as I stopped.
All of these dogs were unrestrained, and nobody came out to tell them to come back.
Like I say, I’m a big tough man, but what about some woman or little girl?
