Nice article on Dove Springs by Sam Ramos [“My Dove Springs … and Ours
,” News, April 11]; but sadly, it included a photo of a fenced dog secured with a large chain. Everyone needs to know that chaining a dog in Austin has been illegal for five years. Chaining a dog is cruel and dangerous for the dog and can lead to aggressive behavior. This, in turn, endangers any children who may approach such an animal. Anyone who sees this type of situation should dial 311 and file a complaint. Anyone who needs assistance obtaining fencing should also dial 311 and ask for animal services.
