TREASURE ISLAND, FL (WFLA) - Dog owners and residents of a Pinellas County condominium complex are in a dispute over a popular dog park.

The park, on Sunset Beach off Treasure Island, has been frequented by dog owners for years because it is one of the few places in Pinellas County where dogs and their owners can legally access the water.

But the St. Petersburg Tribune reported on Sunday that the Mansions' Towers condominium complex recently decided to remove a wooden staircase that had provided access to the beach.

Condo owners say the some dogs were aggressive and that the dog beach attracted too many people.

City officials are considering what can be done to appease both the dog owners and the condo residents.
