Dog mess still a problem

First published in Letters

IN RESPONSE to Jim Dyer’s splenetic attack on Brian Donovan (Argus, June 18) for highlighting once more the incidence of dogs’ mess left by irresponsible owners, I applaud Brian for his constant carping against the minority who will not soil their hands.

I have done much the same in both the letters’ columns and in Grassroots in the past. I’ve have no problem with raising the issue with owners I see being anti-social in this manner.

As a dog walker, I am disgusted at the amount I’ve seen deposited en route to Belle Vue Park and in the park. One woman complained to me because her grandchild had rolled into a mess in the grass. I too have grandchildren and would not wish them to suffer similarly.

The small minority averred by Jim Dyer is larger than he thinks. Take a stroll with me Mr Dyer, witness the mess, and stop pooh-poohing those who complain.
