Dog owners fall foul of the law

Five dog owners have fallen foul of the law for failing to clear up after their pets.In the last 10 days, Shepway Council Environmental Community Wardens issued fixed fines of £50 on the owners after their dogs fouled Sunny Sands, The Leas, Foresters Way and Canterbury Road Recreation Ground in Folkestone and The Green at Hythe.

There's no excuse for allowing dogs to foul pavemements and other public areas and then no cleaning up. All of these areas are well supplied with dog bins. Even where there are not dedicated bins, standard bins can be used or, failing that, the faeces should be taken home by the owner. It really is the height of selfishness that a small minority of people expect someone else to clean up.
