Eltham Resident started this petition to Eltham residents (Nillumbik Council)

Increasingly upsetting residents, owners of dogs who follow the rules, and parents of young children whose safety is endangered, we are pleading with Nillumbik Council to stop ignoring our pleas.

Fellow dog owners are ignoring the on-lead signs allowing their dogs large and small to run free outside designated off-lead areas. There have been incidents of attacks on other dogs, endangering the safety of cyclists, but most importantly, the safety of the people these dogs run to, both physically and psychologically.

The Eltham Life 3095 group has seen much discussion recently regarding the anger it’s causing. In retaliation, someone spray-painted over the on-lead symbols in various parks throughout the area.

We can help make a change through better signage, education around more responsible dog ownership and stricter enforcement by the council.

Please help us get the council’s attention about how serious we are. It’s only a matter of time before someone in our community is savagely mauled too.

Sign the petition and share with your network.
