No, the only thing you missed is that IF the local council had wanted to do something, it would have been done sooner rather than later. IF the police, both local and GC had also wanted to do something, it would have been done. It's only now that someone somewhere has seen the potential for much damage to be done to their income IF this situation is not resolved and the publicity adversely affects visitor numbers that we are seeing someone kicking arse somewhere and more action being taken. Whatever is the cause, I wouldn't take my child anywhere near a beach where poison has been found or suspected until there is sound evidence as to the cause and I am not alone in that view I guarantee. At long last, that message is getting home!

Very well put tonsyl, and I sincerely hope that they up their game and contain this. I'm afraid all the bravado in the world about what people would do to those who are caught, means nothing unless action is actually taken. Surely it is better to go take steps to clear this up now, rather than risk who knows what when the season changes and there are more people around.  :-[

Posted on facebook by Andrew, a link to Ultima Hora stating

Several pet owners are scheduled to meet Saturday at 15.30 at the bus stop Roundabout Moll together for a peaceful march to Llenaire in condemned the poisoning of dogs.

The march is an initiative of a neighbor of Port de Pollença which have joined other neighbors angry.

The march is open to everyone. Members from this initiative will also carry their pets, which will carry muzzle and leash.

In this way the locals want to warn of the risk involved in the use of poison in public areas, such as the beaches of this village, not only for animals but also for people.

Already more than half a dozen dogs that have died envenedados in Port de Pollença. Poisonings occurred while walking with their owners on the beach of Port de Pollença. It is noted that this may be poison for snails.

Unquote.  Hopefully the more pressure , the more action!

A light hearted note to a very serious subject. I do laugh at times at the "mechanical translation" of Spanish and moreso Mallorquine done by Google etc. As in English, often one word in Spanish has several meanings and often Google translator leaves very much to be desired. However, all the best to the organisers, hope their efforts are rewarded.

Well according to participants, there were about 200 people and their dogs at the awareness/protest gathering today, showing how strongly this is affecting everyone. Im not sure if there was any media coverage to help them out, but there are plenty of photos going round on facebook, so hopefully more action will be imminent.

I hope so but so far, the words below your posts sum it up as far as the authorities are concerned!

The Diario de Mallorca reported that over 200 people attended the gathering. Great response, fingers crossed!  (Translation on our Facebook page,      https://www.facebook.com/pages/Puerto-Pollensa-The-BonyGraph/155153367895093 .)

Thanks for the translation of the article BD. I see that comment is made that some want cameras installed, which, if I recall, was one area considered after the first poisonings last year. IMO it would be a good thing if cameras were used. Maybe the idea could be re-visited by the relevant people.

I totally agree tonsyl.  I have mentioned this a couple of times here and on various facebook discussions too. I really cannot see the objection to this at all.  :-[

 PROTEST AGAINST poisoning DOG IN THE PORT OF POLLENÇA

 A group of neighbors with their pets poses in protest this week at the sandy beach.


 The Guardia Civil close the circle on the 'murderer of dogs' del Port de Pollença that poisoned nine dogs. The officers, after months of investigation, have achieved a track that can shed light on the case. Meanwhile, residents have staged another protest.

 Seprona specialists (Nature Protection Service) are overturned in the case and the beaches of Alcúdia Pollença, especially that of Llenaire, are under discreet surveillance, but continues. "It is very important that any person resulting intoxicated, this beach is very popular with children," said a police spokesman, who acknowledged that in recent days "a new line of research 'is handled.

 Since July 2013, when they began poisoning, at least nine have been poisoned dogs. Six of them have died after terrible convulsions.

 Protest

 This week, residents of Port de Pollença have staged another protest march demanding the arrest of the suspect, which are sure to be a resident of the area. Alejandra, one of the protesters, said that "the beaches are no longer safe for anyone" and Francisca, another neighbor, said that "this insurance monster returns to acting. Now know you are very secure, but if it has done nine times not think it will stop. We must stop him before he kills more animals. "

Interesting to see that something seems to be happening at long last. Maybe the pressure of local protests is bearing some fruit but whatever the reason, if the report is correct, the GC seem to be optimistic of feeling someone's collar sometime soon and that's a good thing.
