SFDOG Comment on the Draft GGNRA Dog Rule

SFDOG submitted a comment on the Draft Rule for a Dog Management Plan in the GGNRA that outlines the reasons why the Draft Rule should be withdrawn. The Draft Rule has so many problems, it cannot be used as the basis for a Final Dog Management Rule. It must be completely revised and reissued, followed by another period of public comment on the revised Draft Rule.
