PSA: Beware Jumping Dogs

Hillside dog park

A Dumbo resident sent us an email to warn others about her experience of being attacked by a dog while jogging up towards Hillside Park this morning:

“I want to alert you that I was running up the hill between Dumbo and Brooklyn Heights past the dog park this morning. A large black dog jumped over the fence and started attacking my leg viciously (pic). I was able to run on top of a car to avoid further attack. This is very scary because had I been a small child who knows…. There is a playground on top of the hill that all children in the neighborhood frequent. I was too traumatized to get the owners name. Please be careful especially if you have small children. Pleae alert the neighborhood!”

Pedestrians, please be mindful of dogs, and dog owners, please watch your pets.
