Quote of the Day: I really have never seen any monkeys in Abu Dhabi

A draft by-law would ban pets from the Corniche (the beautiful walkway along the Gulf) and Abu Dhabi's parks because they make a "mess".

Apparently there are no regulations on pets - not even that they be on leashes - enforced by the municipality.

"Some people take their dogs to the shopping centres and this can be scary for children," said Amin Youssef, the capital's technical adviser for municipal services. "Some people are even bringing monkeys outside."

I saw a guy walking his pet monkey in Wafi in Dubai. As for Abu Dhabi, I haven't seen any monkeys there.

What? People don't clean up after their pets?

Or is it more complicated than that?
