First Prev 1 2 3 Next Last

Dog owners have been banned from walking their pets on public beaches until November.

A government spokesman said: “Dogs may be permitted in the parks and on dunes; however, they must be leashed at all times.

“Dog owners are also reminded to responsibly dispose of dog waste and may do so using the provided Dogi Pots.”

The spokesman also urged dog walkers and others using parks and beaches to practise social-distancing.

The Bermuda National Parks Act prohibits dogs on public beaches between April 1 and October 31.
