An officer, exercising the horses in a paddock at the Park Police stable in the Southeast Washington recreation area, was met upon by an unruly collection of dogs of various breeds. The dogs barked and snarled beyond the paddock fence and the officer began leading the horses to the safety of the stable. Because of the dog's behavior, the officer feared that the dogs might squirm under the fence and follow so he fired one or two shots into the ground. At that point, the dogs skedaddled.
With the horses safely inside, Schlosser said, the officer found the canines a short distance away, gathered around a woman who turned out to be a dog walker without leashes.
I wonder if this is dog walker is bonded, insured and a member of NAPPS or Pet Sitters International.
