Subject: seeking support and help from individuals who have guide dogs


About a month ago a guide dog was attacked on Lightrail. The attacking dog
was a Pitbull, and it was a fake service animal. The guide was injured and
had to seek medical attention.

To top it all off, the RT police LT Lisa and the Sac PD did not fine this
individual under the current guide dog protections penal codes. Several of
us went to the RT Board meeting to state our concerns. Now the topic is
being pushed back to the MAC for RT. We are still wanting to get the topic
on the Jan. meeting of the RT Board.

If you use RT, Light rail, or even para transit, we are all at risk of
having our dogs attacked. I hope all of you will show up to the MAC meeting
on Dec. 7, from 2:30 to 4:30. Please understand that none of us are exempt
from having our dogs attacked because of all the fake service animals. RT
has a current policy not to ask if it is a service animal. 

Clearly they know nothing about the laws as they did not follow them. LT
Lisa stated she could not site the individual because she did not witness
the incident. This is simply crap. The law doesn't state that an officer
needs to witness the incident. They had a video which they keep for only
three days and LT Lisa did not view them. Nor did she ask for witnesses on
the train. The Sac PD did nothing as well.

This is the battle of all dog handlers, so please feel free to pass it on.
We heed many handlers at the meeting. By the way, the meeting is at RT's
29th street building.

Please do not think for a second that if you only use paratransit that you
are exempt, because you are not at all.

If you have any questions, please call me at 293 9505.

Thanks much,
