Bengaluru: The Horticulture Department has decided to put a hold on the proposal banning pet entry in Cubbon Park on Tuesday June 28. The decision was made in response to widespread objections from Bengaluru.

MP P. C. Mohan said that he met with Minister for Horticulture N. Muniratna concerning a proposal to prohibit the entry of pet dogs into Bengaluru’s Cubbon Park. “The Horticulture Department temporarily blocks the ban on pets. Hon Minister assured me that he would look into this matter,” he added.

“The blanket ban on pets is against the Animal Welfare Board of India 2016 guidelines framed following a case in the Delhi HC about dogs being allowed in public parks. I hope for a conducive decision in the best interest of the public,” he added.

The pet entry ban was proposed by the Department and was first made public in mid-June when security guards began advising pet owners that their pets would not be allowed starting July 1.
