Dog Pooing

To Editor CurryRivel Above the Levels

Dog poo in Curry Rivel, along the foot path at the side of the Post Office. I counted 16 lots of dog poo ,mostly large dogs, it is not getting any better, but seems to be getting worse,

Owners of large dogs think they don't have to pick it up, someone goes down there nearly every morning before 8.30am and lets their dog use it as a toilet, thinking if they go early they will not get caught....and they don't.

There should be a bin one end of the foot path, as there are owners who bag but leave the bags by the gate or throw it into the hedge,WHO do they think will clean up after them, it gives all dog owners a bad name. It's a shame, we have lovely walks spoilt by a few very lazy dog walkers.

Owners should feel lucky to have places to walk with their dogs, it will be those owners complaining if the land owners get tough.

Your dog, so it's your job to clean up after them, if you don't want to then don't have a dog...no excuses.

Kind regards
Ms M.T.
