Yes, I’m sure the waters off our beaches are so clean that only dog pee would dirty their pristine condition.
But I so agree. What IF the dogs are sick? Gosh that would be an unbearable thought. They should ban dogs from entering our open waters. I think they should ban humans from entering too, sickly children, people who sneeze in the water and clear their mucus haphazardly, coughing persons and all. THE THOUGHT. Where are those bans when you need them?!
This is so retardedly stupid there really isn’t much commentary or critique needed. Thank you, Mr Henry Soh, for contributing to this blogpost. Much appreciated.
I WAS taking a walk along Changi Beach on July 23 at about 5.30pm when I was surprised to see a man unleashing two dogs to play in the sea.
I stopped and looked at the man, who was with two female friends.
They were enjoying themselves, not knowing that what they had done could harm the public. Dogs should be on a leash at all times in public places, especially in parks where children are playing. If a dog bites someone, the owner is sued for legal liability.
What happens if a dog urinates, or is sickly or infected with rabies or other diseases? It could affect someone who takes a swim in the sea and who may return home and spread the disease to family members.
Are dogs allowed in the waters of our beaches? I think they should not be. There should be signs saying so and penalties spelt out with fines indicated.
I think what appalls me more is that Straits Times Forum actually allowed this post to stay.
