Bali Authorities Ban Visitors From Bringing More Than One Pet To Pererenan Beach

Pererenan Village officials have made a new policy that bans visitors from bringing more than one pet to the Pererenan Beach area.

An official from the Pererenan Village, Ketut Sukerasena, confirmed that visitors are no longer allowed to carry multiple pets. This policy was put in place to keep the beach area clean from pet waste.

“This policy was issued as an effort to reduce the waste of those pets, especially in the surfing areas,” Sukerasena said on Wednesday (8/12).

Prior to this new policy, officials had received many complaints from international and local tourists who were annoyed by the waste left by pet owners who took their dogs and cats for a walk along the Pererenan Beach area.

Sukerasena also admitted that at one point, a visitor had brought dozens of dogs at once, causing the beach to be polluted by their waste.

After hearing these complaints, the village officials finally decided to create this policy. They printed it on flyers and placed these around tourist spots in the Pererenan area. This policy was also initiated to prevent dog bites in the area, which might potentially spread the rabies virus.

However, they won’t sanction offenders as the local authority hasn’t officially ratified this policy. “While the ratification process is still running, we can only warn and educate offenders and promote this policy through social media,” Sukerasena concluded.

I have a dog and I made sure I pick it up after his business is done. It's rather nasty to see a big turd on a sidewalk or at a park. Why can't people pick up after their dogs regardless where you live. There should a fine for those lazy dog owners. Sighs.

What about the Human effluent that flow constantly from the rivers? And the locals who use the beach as their toilet?

The core problem with this, is that there are no bins on the beaches for responsible pet owners to dispose of their pets waste or any other general rubbish for that matter. Parks, recreation areas, beaches and public areas should have waste disposal. It wouldn't be expensive to implement either.

@Randy, i suppose they can take it home with them. But i don't understand why there's no public bins on beaches or other public areas. It wouldn't be too hard or expensive to implement and would have a positive impact to the cleanliness of the beaches. As for Paris im sure you get fined if you get caught, also there are public bins pretty much everywhere across europe. Unfortunately there are lazy people everywhere who can't be bothered to clean up their own or their pets mess.

@Steven, people can buy doggie bags and dispose it in their home trash bins should there not be any trash cans in public.

Try walking in Paris. Dog turds are common in public areas. I have always been trained to look down while walking on the sidewalk otherwise you will get a nasty surprise under your shoes.

@Wayan Bo, yes thats true there called doggy bags and if you dont clean uo your pets waste you will get fined. I was talking about general public bins for all waste. Never seen any on the beaches, streets and parks.

@Steven, in Europe there are machines that sell waste bags for such purposes.
