Appeal to stop dogs roaming

The Bays Community Group is asking local residents to ensure their dogs are kept within their properties.

"If you own a dog, would you please make every effort to make sure it is not allowed to roam," group president Ms Gwynneth Weir has asked Bays residents in the group's most recent newsletter.

"Dogs are not allowed off leash anywhere in The Bays," she said.

"However, there are a number of dogs that are seen roaming around The Bays on a regular basis.

"Additionally, while it is possible that all these dogs are friendly, people are not to know that.

"Following reports of a recent serious attack by a dog on the Peninsula, many people are even more nervous about dogs they see roaming."

Ms Weir has also asked that owners carry poo bags when they are walking their dogs.

"Many children living in the Bays, and adults, enjoy playing along the foreshore and reserves and exploring our surrounding bushland.

"While stepping in dog excrement can tarnish an otherwise pleasant walk around the neighbourhood, it also is a public health hazard."

She said it could carry dangerous bacteria and cause disease, "especially damaging to young children and those with compromised immune systems".

It also contributed to polluted run-off.

"The resilience of our oyster industry and plant and animal communities within Brisbane Waters depends on our activities.

"Please do your part as a responsible dog owner.

"Carry poo bags, think of our children, and think of our oysters."
