The number of dogs running loose in Zichron Ya'acov has reached an unacceptable level.
Children and adults are being bitten, chased into busy roads - and some neighborhoods are becoming 'no-go areas'.
Dogs roaming freely on the streets present a danger to adults, children and vehicle drivers alike.
It should not be the responsibility of the public to identify the owners of dogs which are roaming the streets.
The dog mess on the streets presents a health hazard, as well as being unsightly. This is not the image we want visitors to Zichron Ya'acov to remember.
We are requesting the Mayor of Zichron to take a firm stand against the dog-owners who continually flout the law, and to ensure that the dog catchers employed by the moatza are accessible, available when needed and responsive to calls from the public concerning dogs that are not either tied up or secure in their owners' homes or gardens.
We demand Safer Streets for the people of Zichron Ya’acov!
