LETTER: Saanich overdoes with pet control
2 days ago I mosted likely to the eastern end of Cadboro Bay coastline. It was deserted regarding the breakwater. I allow my old Labrador retriever off chain. As I transferred my pet dog bag in the container near the breakwater, a Saanich pet control police officer approached me as he had actually seen my pet dog without a chain.
I was amazed at his look; he appeared like a warder clothed done in black with what seemed a holster before him as well as he quickly patted his body and also intimidated me with me a penalty of $150 or a government penalty of $400 for interrupting wild animals. There were no birds on the coastline as well as nothing else wild animals that I can see as well as no individuals.
I recognize that the law pertaining to off-leash pets on the coastline as well as in the park has actually been gone by Saanich council. I valued not obtaining a penalty. I am opposed to your limitations on pets on the pretense that you are safeguarding moving birds that by this time in the year I comprehend are lengthy gone.
The truth that as a taxpayer I am required to spend for enforcement police officers in black enormous attires is extremely offending. That decided to police the coastline needlessly this way? As there are no moving birds, what is the function apart from to please a handful of beachside locals?
If you desire to estrange better individuals that like the park and also the coastline and also are accountable in their activities, you have actually done well.
