    I get chased by stray dogs many time on fishing trips at ( 6:45pm – 7:00pm )

    This is the time that stray dog become more aggressive after 6:45pm. And start to attack people walking past there.

    ( And it's not safe to ride a bike or walk past there )

    ( Only safe to drive a car there, but not safe to ride a bike or walk past there )

    On weekend many school student and family went there for other activity.

    And the place become danger zone of stray dogs attack bicycle rider, motorcycles rider , jogging and fishing trips people.

    We saw this women took many plastic bag of dogs foods from her car to feed the stray dogs. And She dirty the place too of feeding the stray dogs.

    Her vehicles licence plate number: SFY5217G.

    The women that feed the stray dog was there too. And she keep talking to her friend on phone and not even care about my daughter of her stray dog try to attack.
    I’m so angry, and took my fishing rod to chased the stray dogs away.
