I agree with Alison Drover’s recent article and her final line ‘wildlife needs more love, and our dog owners need a tighter lead’.
But the majority of dog owners think rules saying ‘no dogs in our national parks, beaches and nature reserves’ do not apply to their dogs. A leash is something most do not use.
Dogs do not enhance my life but our dwindling wildlife and their habitats do. Let’s save our wildlife now and our mental health. So many dogs are contributing to global warning, and are directly harming wildlife and people.
