Letters: Exploiting others

Irresponsible dog owners should not allow dogs to chase wildlife

Your photos of dogs harassing wildlife illustrates the irresponsibility of some people.

That’s why dogs are banned from Beacon Hill Park in Victoria – the parks department puts branches on the ground so herons don’t destroy trees to keep adding to their nest, but dogs harassed the herons.

I think it’s the same people who litter and deliberately drive dangerously – they believe in exploiting others for their own convenience and psychological jollies. Yes, some dog owners urge chasing wildlife, apparently enjoying the sight.

Will voters push politicians to increase funding for police to patrol parks, trails, and roads?
