Many Bay Area canine owners are fuming over the latest dog management plan for the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. Dog owners had hoped the National Park Service would adjust its controversial draft plan, which restricts dog access in areas it controls, including San Francisco's Crissy Field, Ocean Beach and Fort Funston. But most of the changes remain. The Park Service says the rules are needed to protect wildlife and vegetation.
