Human Society chief caught in no-dog area with dog

Advertiser Staff

The executive director of the Kaua'i Humane Society was fined $100 last week for carrying a dog in the basket of her bicycle while on a shared-use path system where dogs are prohibited.

Rebecca Rhodes pleaded guilty in District Court on Wednesday to violating the Kaua'i County Code.

She was riding her bike on Jan. 29 on a section of the Ke Ala Hele Makalae coastal path fronting Kealia Beach where dogs are not allowed when park rangers issued her a citation.

Signs are posted along the path informing users of where dogs are allowed.
