The municipality of Natales will begin to implement in the short term the city ordinance on responsible pet ownership that establishes the removal of abandoned dogs in the streets and the application of fines against the owners of the copies that are found on public roads.

For this reason, he added, “we are doing a tremendous job, and it appears this lawsuit that I don’t know what is the background. You have to be super clear that the purpose of this demand we will begin to communicate the term of the educational process. The mea culpa that one must be made of why these things happen is that we have dilated a lot of the beginning of the fulfillment of an ordinance that is already published, which says that when there are abandoned dogs on the streets must be removed from the public road and if they have an owner, this has to be the subject of fines, because here the people have to take responsibility for their dogs”.
