I see there is an investigation underway to the number of crabs being washed up on the beaches of Redcar and Saeton Carew. A few weeks back we had a number of Guillemots dead at the South Gare. It might be wise to keep your pets away from these areas for the time being.

It also coincides with the relaxation of the government's rules on dumping sewage into our rivers and seas. Another Brexit disaster.

Teething troubles.

Unless your dog is liable to eat the deceased seagulls and crabs or drink seawater by the gallon I'm not sure there is much risk to your dog?

That isn't to say that it isn't a disgrace that we are dumping untreated effluent into the sea, it is, but I don't think it is something that might adversely affect the health of our canine chums?

It isn't untreated

This was one of the dogs when the Guillemots were dead on the beach. As you can see, he’s got one in his mouth.

Our dog (RIP 🐶 ) used like a nice munch on dead crabs, it'd crunch through one despite the shell cutting his mouth 😳

OK.

Yes, I think the first twelve words of my initial reply addressed that possibility. And even then, the pictured pooch is not consuming the sadly deceased marine avian. I was recently in Scotland and there were several dead sea birds on the Fife beaches my dog sniffed at them but no more. I have had dogs that would roll in them or even attempt to eat them and I would indeed keep my dog away from the beaches if he/she were so inclined. Hence my comment.
