BEACH PATROL: Random visits to trap alleged poisoner Photo credit: Campello town hall

CAMPELLO’s Policia Local now patrol the dogs-allowed beach at the mouth of the Rio Seco.

Uniformed and plainclothes officers carry out random daily inspections, taking care not to follow a set routine after receiving reports maintaining that a person, or persons, are leaving poison-laced bait there.

The town hall’s Public Safety councillor Rafa Galvañ announced earlier that his department has mounted a special operation to “investigate, detect and fine antisocial behaviour towards pets.”


This followed an official complaint from a local woman who claimed that her dog died at the end of June after eating “something toxic or poisonous” on the beach.

Linda came to Spain to live when she was 24, just over 52 years ago, and her husband is Spanish. She began writing for English-language local newspapers in the mid-1970s and hasn’t stopped since! She leads a Spanish life, which she believes is vital when conveying the news to English-speaking residents, and along the way she produced two editions of Expand Your Spanish, helping English-speakers to enlarge their knowledge of the language. She was excited to be in at the birth of the Euro Weekly News in 1999 and is still passionately writing for the paper 22 years later.
