A protest has been planned for this Saturday, May 21st, 10:30am -12:30pm, in which opponents of the GGNRA’s restrictions on off-leash dogs will be marching from Ocean Beach to Sigmund Stern Grove. Organizers expects several hundred attendees, it is unclear whether this number also includes dogs.
Dog owners got thrown a bone yesterday when the SF Board of Supervisors went on record stating that they oppose the federal (proposed) ban on off-leash dogs in certain areas (e.g. Crissy Field, Fort Funston) of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area.
Let’s file this under “Bad Ideas” shall we? SF Gate just ran a piece via AP saying that Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick – you know, the guy who ran a vicious a dog-fighting ring and then went to jail for 18 months – now wants a pet dog. Wait, is that Peta I hear knocking down Vick’s door?
