This letter is written in response to the article in the Feb. 9 edition of the Payson Roundup about Kathleen Kelly, a registered Payson nurse, whom, while walking her dog on Main Street, was attacked by three dogs.
I would also like to acknowledge the loose dog problem this community and the Ox Bow community share. I have not felt safe walking my dog, which I leash according to the leash laws in this state, in either community since moving here in November.
I challenge Lt. Don Engler, the animal control officer and the Payson Police Department, to get this problem under control and make Payson a safe town to live in without the fear of dog attacks.
Also, kudos to Pat Willis, Ms. Kelly's "combat-angel," for coming to her aid.
Cyndi MacDonald, Ox Bow Estates
