keep dogs on a lead in public places.

Swan Support have, over recent months, rescued many swans who have been attacked and injured by dogs who are not being kept on leads and properly controlled whilst being walked. Several of these swans have sustained injuries so severe that as a  result they have died.  This includes one of a local breeding pair who had cygnets.  This obviously resulted in this family being destroyed and the cygnets left without a mother.  These attacks are occurring far to often, they are needless, and completely preventable.  We are asking people to keep their dogs on a lead and under proper control whilst in public places.  We would like councils to designate specific areas where people can let their dogs off leads, where they will not be a danger to the local wildlife.
