Arona is putting a bylaw in place which will allow fines of between €750 and €3,000 to be imposed on dog owners who fail to clear up after their pets. The Ayuntamiento says that the measure has been fuelled by the many complaints received about dog mess on the streets. Environment councillor Antonio Sosa said that the measure will be approved in the next few weeks and will make Arona the municipality with the heaviest fines against pet owners in Tenerife.
