Short Leash


In England, the Tameside Council has barred dogs from all cemeteries and school playgrounds and required owners to keep dogs on leashes of no more than two meters in many parks and open areas. They say the move is aimed at reducing the amount of dog waste left in those areas. But dog owners say that if that's their goal, they should start cracking down on owners who don't clean up after their dogs and not put responsible owners on a short leash.
