PACC conducting leash law sweep

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Heads up for dog walkers this morning, you could be in trouble with the law if you take your dog for a walk without a leash.

Pima Animal Care officer will be out in force in the community today conducting a 'leash violation' sweep. They will be handing out citations to dog owners who do not use a leash. They will also be checking for other animal related violations.

Officers say leash laws are in place to protect dogs from getting hurt or lost. Here are some reminders for pet owners:

Pet must be on a leash no longer than six feet; at local parks dogs are only allowed off leash when in designated 'off leash' areas; pick up animal waste on public property within 24-hours inside city limits.

The last time officers conducted a sweep they sent five dogs to the pound and issued six leash law violations.
