New Dog Regs in New York

Ted Kerasote has an op ed in the NYT (registration required) about new dog regs that, if they stand up, will require all dogs in the New York City area to be on leash all the time.

When are we going to learn that perfect safety is impossible, and that attempts to acheive it destroy even minimal freedom for us and our non- human symbionts? (They may even destroy that symbiosis itself, which may be the agenda for some proponents of such regulations). I would hate to be a city dog or a city dog owner (pigeon- flyer, whatever) today.
