A young man walked with his Pitbull dog unleashed. I requested him politely to put his dog on a leash. He ignored my request and answered to me with profanity.
I just want to bring this fact to you and our community. I do not want to wait until my children are mauled or severely injured to stop this type of irresponsible behavior. People should walk their dogs on a leash, more so if they have a vicious dog.
The members of our community should report this type of irresponsible behavior to the Animal Control Department of the Pleasanton Police by calling 931-5100 so that we avoid an attack to ourselves or our children. We have the social responsibility to act in order to avoid an irreparable physical injury or in the worst case scenario losing a dear member of our family.
