Comments, Questions and Answers

Dogs On Beach - A Mexican Tortuga official on a quad at the beach in Pescadero, last year, warned all the Pescadero residents that the Mexican agency in charge of the Turtle(Tortuga) nesting projects was working for a no dogs on the beach policy as dogs have a tendency to dig nests and crap on the beach, and the owners don't take responsibility for their dogs. Lo siento Gringos in Mexico - Amy, amyhop[-at-], Todos Santos

"No Dogs On Beach" - I have not read the Marine law but I have been told that most (if not all) of the beaches in Cabo have enforced the "no dogs on the beach" law. I have a friend there with two dogs and she mentioned to me last year that they often come up to Cerritos to run the dogs as they can no longer take them on the beach in and around Cabo. Maybe it is a law that they are just starting to enforce - like so many other laws here in Mexico. - Diane Knight, dianekknight[-at-]

Harassment Of Dog Owners On The Beach - What some of you citizens have been experiencing is what the Todos Tortugueros group members have been experiencing throughout this entire season. We know who this person is. I would urge any and all Mexicanos and foreign residents to voice their experiences and together file an official complaint or demanda on the individual who harassed you so that the proper authorities are made aware of what this person is doing. That he is now using the local police to further his goals is not good.

The official word from Profepa is that there is no law regarding dogs on the beaches of Mexico. I would also suggest that people make a complaint directly to Profepa in La Paz. I'm sure a reader out there can provide a contact name and number. If you want more information as to the identity of this individual and some of the background to these incidents, please contact me. - Steve Merrill, cruz[-at-], Todos Santos

Car Needs Help - I have a 1990 Toyota Land cruiser that will not shift. It is an automatic trans and you can drive it if you run it like a standard. If you know anything that might help please let me know. Thank you - Nick Sahli, capin_destructo[-at-], 612-14-50552, Todos Santos

Expired FM3 - In answer to the question about having an expired FM3 and trying to enter the country: Our friends used to live here in Mexico but have not lived here for four years. When they returned for a visit this summer, they were entering on tourist visas since they assumed their expired FM3s were no longer any good. They were given a one day permit and told to appear at Immigration the next day. It turns out that you need to CANCEL your FM3, not just let it expire. After a 2 hour interview, it was finally decided that they had no ill intents, so the fine was ONLY $200 U.S. apiece! The gal doing the translation for them told them the official could have gone as high as $900! SO----in answer to the question, an expired FM3 needs to be canceled if you have no intent to use it again and DO NOT attempt to enter on a tourist permit with an expired FM3 on record! It's a serious offense! -

Rides Needed/Available

Transport Used Couch: - I am willing to pay for transporting a used sectional down south to my home near Pescadero in the next six weeks. I can have it ready to load at the San Diego border. It is worth less than $300 so there would be no custom charge. Appreciate any ideas on how I may do this, and attendant charges. - Barbara Ginner, barbginner[-at-], 760-743-1842, Pescadero

Anyone Lose Their Dog?? - There's a cute little tan and white dog wandering on the beach and looks to have a hurt hind leg. He seems disoriented and won't come near our homes. This is in Pescadero on Crangejos Beach, south of San Pedrito but north of Cerritos. Last sighting was today, he's been around for the last 2 -3 days. Or maybe you would like to rescue if no one claims him. So sad to see him running on 3 legs. Call if you would like info. We'll let you know if he's still around. Thanks - villaventanas[-at-], 612-142-8249, Pescadero
