Brussels tackles dog dirt
Anyone walking a dog in Brussels must have a sack visibly be hanging from the leash. The fines will range from €50 to €250
From now on, anyone walking a dog in Brussels must have a sack with him or her.
This is not new, but what IS new is that the sack must visibly be hanging from the leash. People who do not have a sack visible while walking their dog will be liable to be fined.
The fines will range from €50 to €250. The Brussels police will be lenient in the beginning until everyone knows the new regulation. There will be a kind of transition period. After the new regulation is widely known, the police warn that they will enforce it very strictly.
Dog owners have been warned.
