dear editor, if you are a lover of stray dogs then zipolite beach is the place for you. they are all over the place, defecating and urinating and attacking people, individually and in packs. they are un-vaccinated and thus pose an additional threat especially to children. the mexicans and some of the gringoes not only tolerate them but indulge them, thus conditioning them to aggressively expect care and attention. there is no real animal control. publius

Well I've never seen them attack anybody. They seem to the well fed, and bother noone. And I am not the dog lover. I've only seen about 6 or 10 dogs on the whole beach and their small dogs at that.

Only a few times in all my travels in Mexico have I been challenged by a dog.
Each time all I had to do was while keeping an eye on the dog (but not staring eye contact) is bend over and pick up a rock, or pretend to, and cock my arm.

Every time the dog has beat a hasty retreat.

Seems any dog surviving to adulthood has been beaned by a rock and remembers it.

I think "Roof Dogs" are another story, but then I don't don't go on roofs.

All of the dogs we saw there last week had impeccable manners and were quite joyful as was the whole town!
