LETTER: Ban dogs? Why not ban kids?

Mrs Pettingell wants a dog free beach all year because of irresponsible owners [Letters, November 27]. One could easily take it a step further and ban children because of the minority of irresponsible parents who allow or don’t care about the appalling behaviour of their offspring. Perhaps we should live and let live. On taking our dog for a walk along a beach this week we collected four used nappies and we disposed of them, as we didn’t want to expose our dog to any health risk.
