Tom Callan, KSL Newsradio Sandy authorities are checking out a complaint that dogs and their owners are being chased out of parks.
A woman said a bunch of guys playing football at a public park told her to "take her pooch and scram."
One might think out of some 20 Sandy parks, there is enough turf for sniffing and scrimmaging.
But if Spot is tethered, and you are ordered to leave, you can gracefully decline. "If you are obeying the laws and going into a park just like every other citizen there, and it's a public open-space, you have every right to be there as well," explained Trina Klingler, spokesperson for Sandy City.
Klingler says there is one park at Lone Peak for unleashed pooches. "We are in the process of building another park that will have a three acre off leash dog park," she said.
You would think the football players would have asked the dog to at least fetch their bad passes.
