5 minuti d’inglese – leggi e ascolta – Sicily dog owners must wash away pets’ pee

Diamo un’occhiata a una recente notizia su una nuova legge in Sicilia.

As well as picking up their pets’ excrement, dog owners in Sicily will now have to wash away their urine under a regional law approved by the Sicilian Assembly (ARS).

The measure is contained in a bill covering “norms to safeguard animals and the prevention of stray dogs“.

In addition to removing their dog’s excrement from the street or parks, in Sicily, the owners of four-legged animals will also be required to clean their pee with water.
