Dogs must be on leash

-A +A


I routinely see dogs without leashes walking alongside people in my neighborhood. Today, my wife saw a large mastiff accompanying a man pushing a stroller. The man didn’t even have a leash in his hand. That’s a recipe for disaster!

Is there no leash law in Lincoln? If there is such a law, has it ever been enforced? When we see irresponsible dog owners like that, what should private citizens do?

Are we just supposed to allow ourselves to be cowed off the sidewalk?
