Leash Your Dog, Fort Collins Now Has Rangers Out Patrolling
Fort Collins has a very strict policy on dogs, they must be on a leash and you must pick up after them. But for the first time ever there are now two rangers assigned to enforce the city’s dog leash law. These rangers are retired Fort Collins police officers that do not carry guns.Violations carry a fine of $100.
According to the Coloradoan:
The two rangers aim to help reduce user conflicts, perform work otherwise handled by parks employees and police officers, and tighten up enforcement of city rules.Leash law violations are at the top of their list. The two are spending the next few months educating parks users about the leash law and dog-waste pickup laws before they start writing tickets in earnest.
