Animal excrement concern

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cutaneous_larva_m...Image via Wikipedia nationnews.com: "HEALTH AUTHORITIES ARE concerned about people who walk their dogs on the beach and leave their excrement there.

It comes in the wake of several reports of sea bathers contracting cutaneous larva migrans, a disease that penetrates the outer layers of the skin, leaving wormlike burrows that are clearly visible.

Investigations are being conducted at some of the island’s popular beaches including Browne’s Beach at Bay Street, St Michael."
