Letter: Local residents ignore ‘no dogs’ bylaws at beaches

Contrary to what dog owners claim, there are many that do not clean up after their animals and leave a disgusting mess where children play.

To the editor:

As a resident of the Lower Mission and a user of Sarsons beach and Eldorado beach access I would like to know why local dog owners continue to take their animals to these beaches when there are signs clearly stating that these are non-dog beaches. These people just ignore the signs, it seems, with complete impunity.

When challenged, dog owners become either belligerent or act as if they are being victimized.

In the many years I have lived here, I have seen little or no enforcement by our bylaws officers ever.

Contrary to what dog owners claim, there are many that do not clean up after their animals and leave a disgusting mess where children play.

There have been several dog parks set up at taxpayers’ expense where dog owners can go—take your dogs there.
