Taking your dog out for a stroll on Marine Drive may soon have to stop. MCGM is planning to make the promenade out of bounds for pets. Civic officials say owners refuse to clean up after their pets ‘poop’ at the promenade and even fines don’t deter them from bringing the animals along. So they have no other choice but the ban. MCGM has given pet-owners a month to mend their ways or the ban will come into force. MCGM Additional Commissioner RA Rajeev further stated that place like Marine Drive is one of the excellent hangouts in the city and it is duty of every citizen to keep it neat and clean.
