Ranger zaps off-leash dog walker with shock gun

"A Montara man walking two lapdogs off leash was hit with an electric-shock gun by a National Park Service ranger after allegedly giving a false name and trying to walk away, authorities said Monday."

I'd say this was just a *little* excessive for someone walking two small dogs off-leash!

It's a good reminder to us all - make sure your dog has a solid recall so you can quickly snap their leash on if a ranger/sheriff approaches you at a park.
