Pick up the poo!

Watch out!

Watch out!


The dog poo on our streets, from Salisbury Road all the way into town, has got stupid!

Why have people stopped picking it up? They should be warned it is no laughing matter! It is making me and loads of friends so mad; it’s ending up on our kids’ shoes and prams! I am just so mad and I think you should put a warning in our paper. Dog owners should pick up the poo!

  • I agree completely, it gives us that walk our dogs in other areas and DO pick up poo a bad name! This week alone i have stopped my van and offered bags to two people, a young lady walking a Staffordshire bull terrier type dragging it along whilst it was going to the toilet, but she was too busy pulling it and playing with her phone to look at what it was doing!!! ( Albion hill out side the fabric shop!) and the other was the green in littleham, a teenage boy, black Labrador cross, ( boy was in college uniform) dog off lead, leaving a not-so-lovely surprise outside someone's gate!! he did stop and have a look, and waited for it to finish, before then leaving it and carrying on..... name and shame... will it work? are they not embarrassed by their behaviour?! I own several dogs, and would hate to think i was to blame for someone stepping in their poo, its very easy to bag it and bin it... more dog wardens maybe to help with more fines to those genuinely not picking up? I also have a child, and i know how frustrating it can be, as if the owners are NOT responsible ones, how do we know the worming treatment is up to date and not a danger to children? Bag it and Bin it... there is no poo fairy after all!!!
