LETTER: Barking mad idea to ban dogs on the beach

I AM SO incensed in respect to your newspaper article about the banning of dogs on the beach at Mooloolaba.

I have walked dogs along Mooloolaba beach since the mid-1980s and beyond and there's never been a problem.

Your survey, July 26, shows clearly 40% of respondents agree with dogs on Mooloolaba beach with a lead.

I asked local councillor Jason O'Pray yesterday about this and he said "Not sure, mate, first I've heard of it.”

As your paper has stated there will be a massive protest on the beach if this is the case.

People power will win, next they will ban dogs from Pt Cartwright.

The council are disenfranchising themselves with its voters and come election time if they persist with these stupid rules they will pay the price.
