Da Lat City in the Central Highlands province of Lam Dong on Sunday quickly deployed forces to address complaints about some individuals using their dogs to illegally monopolize shade under cherry-like apricot blossom trees near Xuan Huong Lake and offer photography services.

Authorities requested that the dog owners – N.Q.H., a 25-year-old from northern Hung Yen Province, and L.D.D., a 23-year-old from southern Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province – bring their four Alaskan dogs to the local administrative office.

The officers linked them to incidents involving dogs being taken to public areas without muzzles and proceeded to investigate additional violations reported by visitors.

Previously, some visitors reported that certain individuals were illicitly occupying space and preventing them from taking photos with cherry-like apricot blossom trees, which are blooming out of season in Da Lat City. 

The occupants positioned Alaskan dogs under the trees at Lam Vien Square and Yersin Park on Tran Quoc Toan Street.

Visitors wanting to take photos in these public spaces were asked to pay money. 

The People’s Committee of Da Lat City noted that this issue had persisted for a long time, resembling street vending, and thus presented numerous challenges to deal with it.
