I was just finishing one of the most incredible hikes of my lifetime on Easter Sunday in Black Star Canyon. Then your unleashed dog came after me, his teeth just missing my Achilles tendon three times. And you justify your dog's attack because, according to you, "He doesn't like hostility"? Hostility had nothing to do with it! You seem to think you're above the law—specifically County Code Title 10, Sec. 10.32.010. (Look it up.) As I got into my car to drive away, I noticed your dog was still unleashed. Looks like you are the unpredictable animal who needs restraint.
