A couple of recent dog attacks have forced the city to step up patrols at the Dog Park in Central Park, Schenectady.

According to the Times Union, two separate dog attacks, both involving the same aggressive animal within two weeks of each other is leading to increased patrols of Schenectady's Dog Park in Central Park. In one of the incidents, a teenager was bitten in the leg by the dog. At Monday's City Council committee meeting, City Council President Ed Kosiur apologized to the teen and her mother for the incident and promised new steps to be put in place to ensure that the park is safe. New warning signs outlining rules of the park are set to go up over the next couple of weeks. Another incident involving the same dog occurred weeks later involving a 13 year old boy being bitten.

Let's hope things can be done so that everyone is safe at the dog park.
