Letters: Dog free park at Spit

Perhaps Whiffin Spit should become a dogless park because of 'land mines' left by dogs

In response to Land Mines on the Spit.

Lexa Gollmer you are not alone in your opinion of the state of Whiffin Spit Park and I feel it’s time I also voice my concern.

I grew up playing on the beaches of Whiffin Spit long before it became a park and such a popular destination to walk. Over the years and especially now it has become a dirty dog toilet. I admire the individuals who have trained dogs on leashes who pick up after their pets however, I believe these dog owners are the minority.   The majority pretend not to notice that their dog has pooped or maybe think it will  dry up or wash away with the rain. It is not your right as a dog owner to leave the mess your pet creates behind. Bylaw enforcement is required or the perhaps Whiffin Spit should become a dog free park so all residents and visitors  can enjoy the beauty of Sooke in a clean environment.
