Does anyone else think that there is an issue with uncontrolled dogs off their leads at Mayow Park?

I have had two very bad experiences - one last summer when a large dog ransacked our picnic with young children, including taking food and chasing the kids. This has resulted in my three-year-old daughter being terrified of all dogs. We struggled to find the owner and when I requested the dog to be put on his lead he told me to shut up.

Today a large dog chased our party with young children and nipped a 12-month-old boy in the hand. Again, the owner never came forward, apologised nor took any responsibility for the dog's actions and it was up to us to chase it off.

To dog owners: "it's a friendly dog" or "he/she likes kids" is not an adequate response to your dog rifling, chasing or otherwise being uncontrolled around my children. I don't know your dog. And you don't know how your dog will act around my children, particularly when they are running around scared, screaming and with food. Going forward, I will be kicking dogs which approach my children. I hope this makes you worry how a mother with small children might treat your dog just as I worry how your dog will treat my children.
