Around DB has received an email from a concerned resident regarding dogs and hygiene on Tai Pak Wan beach in DB.
The resident is worried that dogs are being allowed to urinate on the beach where children play.
“Bigger than the health issue resulting from the visible rubbish on the beach, is the health issue caused by the invisible danger,” the email states. “Our children are playing where the dogs urinate. I have witnessed adults show blatant contempt when confronted by the guards… who are shunned and told to leave them in peace.
“I have witnessed early morning walks with urinating dogs on the beach! The signs say ‘no dogs’ which means 24 hours. I assume the beach is not intended to be a dogs’ urinal and that the rules are there to protect the children.”
