A  popular dog walking event in Los Alcazares in aid of the Cruz Azul animal charity had to be cancelled at the last minute because the local council wouldn’t allow it to go ahead. The ‘Walk On The Bark Side” had taken place without any problems in 2013 and 2014, but organisers were forced to put out a late statement last Friday saying that the council had “rescinded the license” for the event to take place last Sunday which was going to be based around the Esplanade as in previous years. The organisers said that Los Alcazares council was responding to a regional directive across Murcia stating that dogs were to be banned from being walked across all promenades in the region, and added that everything had happened so late that they did not have time to challenge the decision, or to see when the law had actually gone onto the statute book.
