Good on you for taking photos and reporting them.

I do the same thing when the opportunity presents itself, I actually take video of the person in the park and then film them putting their dog and themselves in their car, including recording their number plates, has worked several times to put the wind up people and move them out of park areas (illegal wood gathering etc) and will make them think twice about doing so in the future..

Because (I am assuming) that those who took the photos do not have any powers under (e.g.,) the National Parks Act, I would imagine that the evidence would not be admissible in court, however it certainly is a powerful deterrent in any case.

From a proactive management point of view, in problem areas interpretive signage must be erected to explain why dogs can't be taken into parks as very few people actually understand the science / reasoning behind it...with a healthy reminder of the size of the fine that sits behind the act (maximum 20 Penalty units = $110- per unit = $2,200)

For those who don't know why you shouldn't take dogs into parks, read this:
