Leopold Comment On Dog Shooting

Anne Arundel County Executive John R. Leopold has issued a statement regarding the shooting of a dog in a County dog park on Monday night by a federal law enforcement officer. Initially the police indicated that there would be no charges nor an investigation. While this statement does not specifically call for an investigation, we certainly hope that one is undertaken.

Like many other citizens in our County, I have great concern regarding the shooting incident last night at the Quail Run dog park.

It is concerning whenever a firearm is discharged at a public facility, let alone a facility that close to homes and children playing.  All aspects of this incident merit a thorough and complete investigation.

We have wonderful resources for dog owners in Anne Arundel County.  I want to ensure our citizens that these facilities are a safe and enjoyable place to let your dog exercise.
