Only 11 People Fined For Breaking Dogs Bans On Cornish Beaches
4:12pm 2nd August 2013
Only eleven people have got into trouble for breaking dogs bans on Cornish beaches so far this year.
That is despite Pirate FM seeing four owners take their pets onto Porthtowan in twenty minutes.
Some parish councils have their own teams to check.
Kevin Brader from Cornwall council said prosecution was a last resort:
"That's very rare obviously and in a lot of these situations, we may be inclined to have an advisory message and an advisory chat with the person. But by and large, if there is a ban in place, we expect it to be enforced by officers.
"We've got officers that deal with a wide range of issues. Obviously we're dealing with stray dogs on a day to day basis, as well as fouling complaints, not only in beaches but in parks and in communities. So, we divide our time up and when we can get down to beaches to patrol, we do that as well."
