Time for the city to get tough on peo­ple and ‘pests’

Southern Telegraph - - News -

Of course the dan­ger of unat­tended, un­leashed dogs can­not be re­futed but, in general, most dogs are a pest.

I would doubt that half of the dogs in peo­ple’s back­yards are ex­er­cised and far too many of them bark day and night at any­thing at all (or noth­ing at all).

The amount of dog ex­cre­ment on foot­paths is dis­gust­ing and own­ers who per­sist, when they do walk their dogs, in tak­ing them to the beach should re­alise that not ev­ery­one is pleased to see, hear and to share the com­pany of their dog.

Maybe it’s time for the City to get tough on dogs and their own­ers.

Re­mem­ber, the word “pets” is an ana­gram of “pest”. P. Bradshaw Warn­bro
