    Conservation Officers ticketing off-lease doggies in WMAs

    Saw this lots on low tide in Boundary Bay. People just walk right out on the beach with their dogs and they can't control them and they mess with the shorebirds.

    Conservation Officer Service
    Before you play fetch with Fido this season, please make sure you are in an area that allows off-leash dogs.
    Conservation Officers have issued several $115 tickets to dog owners whose pets were roaming free in Wildlife Management Areas (WMA).
    Five tickets and two warnings were issued in just over an hour on #WhiteRock beach, in the Boundary Bay WMA, while COs at #Parksville Bay beach also issued a ticket.
    Wildlife Management Areas can have restrictions on activities that can impact wildlife and habitat. Certain beaches, like Parksville Bay, are closed to dogs entirely during March and April to protect migrating Brant geese.
    Please obey all signage. To learn more about WMAs, please visit: https://tinyurl.com/wglsood #WMA #BCCOS

    The dogs aren't the problem. They just do dog stuff. The owners are to blame so they should pay.
    Growing old is unavoidable. Growing up is highly overrated....

    $115.00 isn't much of a deterrent.
