Hi Both

Would something from Melbourne be treated as just an intrusion ? If not I could:

point out value of dog-free areas for humans which I as a dog owner support

say we have similar issues with 4 local reports saying dogs should be kept away 
from our best coastal bird area because of birds and other animals (and 
trampling seagrass?)

mention various texts on dogs and birds (David Paton's Coorong study, last 
year's Wingspan supplement on shorebirds)

say it is bad policy and anti-democratic to give way to petitioners (even a 
majority) unless they have demonstrated they are not merely selfish and have 
understood the objections and implications.
