Dog Attack at Honeygo Park Hospitalizes Man

Police responded to an attack between leashed dogs Saturday afternoon in Perry Hall.

A walk in the park turned violent Saturday afternoon. 

A dog on a leash attacked another dog on a leash at about 3:10 p.m. on Nov. 17, at Honeygo Run Regional Park in the 9000 block of Honeygo Boulevard in Perry Hall, according to Capt. Michael Balog of the White Marsh police precinct. 

The owner of the dog that was attacked attempted to pull off the other dog. The owner was scratched and bit in the process. He was taken by ambulance to MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center, Balog said.

The person walking the attacking dog told police it was in "doggie foster care," he said. No one was arrested or charged in the incident.

No further information on the breeds of dogs involved was available as of Monday morning.

Honeygo Run Regional Park is a popular dog walking area and the future location of a public dog park. Leashed animals are currently permitted throughout the park.

It sounds like a milkbone deal gone bad.

Or it could have been a dogmestic dispute.

Unruly dogs are a concern and a reason I wish the proposed dog park had another location. I'm a walker, and I have been on the track a number of times when people with dogs encounter other people with dogs or just someone interested in talking about their dog and they stand in the middle of the track. I stay to the right to let runners go by - people who stop should get off the track. People using the track for its intended purpose shouldn't have to risk twisting an ankle to run/walk off the track to avoid those who shouldn't be there in the first place. Runners shouldn't need to go to the high school track to run; they'd already be there if it was convenient. It should be a multipurpose track. But it is annoying when unattended kids or dogs and their owners become a hazard to people walking/running on the track. Let common sense and courtesy prevail. It's a little like this forum, where some of you should exit because you aren't serving any useful purpose.

What a lot of silly complaints over nothing. I am so happy to see children, older people, DOGS, and happy people using this lovely little park. The tragic people of N.Y. and N.J. would love to be able to enjoy our great park. " Smile and the world will smile with you, Frown and you frown alone" (My interpretation) KGM

Of course they stand on the track. Venture more than a few inches off the pavement and be prepared to clean the dog poop off of your shoes. BTW, the track is convenient, but it is also populated with people with dogs (and it is not unusual to see dog poop on or near the track), kids on bikes/scooters, people walking 4-5 lanes abreast on the inside lanes. As with the road, on the track slower traffic should keep right.
