DOG FOULING ON OUR STREETS NEEDS TO BE STOPPED
Both Councillor Barbara Dring and I have been campaigning for some time to remind dog owners of the need to take and bin their dogs mess.
Possibly due to the recent bad weather or the dark nights, there have been reports of an increase in dogs fouling our pavements.
Today I have been out chatting to a number of dog owner and with exception they have all had doggy bags and are getting their dogs mess up. Most dog owners are responsible like the one in the picture above.
Sadly it would appear a small minority who seem to slip out at mainly at night do not. They must realise the potential harm to children's sight their dogs mess can be.
I have been asking the Dog Wardens to investigate in the Oscott area and given the correct evidence they may well prosecute offenders.
Please bag and bin or take home your dogs mess.
