Controversial Turre pet bylaw approved

Owners will be required to muzzle their dogs in public places, irrespective of the breed

By David Jackson

Turre council has unanimously voted in favour of a new pet bylaw forcing pet owners to muzzle their dogs in public places.

According to the draft rules approved at a plenary meeting last week, dogs must be kept on a lead in the street and be muzzled in public spaces. They are also banned from shops, bars and restaurants.
