Re: Fox Update...leash laws...

Well, my domestic critters weren't in the public domain.  They were in my
yard with me.  And if anything makes them lunge or run, it is always toward
the house or yard, or each other (usually playfully!), not away from it.
These were young large breed dogs and she had no real control over them.
Heck I might have been afraid when they came running toward me, but I was
too busy protecting my cats.  I am momma - hear me roar!
