Ramat Hasharon has embarked on a campaign to penalize dog owners who allow their pets to soil the city's sidewalks and public parks and to roam around unleashed, reports www.local.co.il. In November alone, city inspectors issued more than 50 fines of NIS 430 each to owners who failed to clean up their dogs' deposits or who allowed their dogs to run free. The report said the city is making a concerted effort to increase its enforcement of dog laws, and has sent a new dog-catching vehicle into action to trap unaccompanied dogs. The owners of roaming dogs will not only be fined NIS 430 for failing to leash the animal, but will also be charged NIS 68 for transport and NIS 30 per day for the dog's accommodation at the city kennel.
