    A dog walker was reported to Leeds City Council for allowing his dog to foul in Calverley Park in Jan and Feb this year. He was in court on 8 June and fined nearly £800.00! I don't know about you but as a dog owner myself I always take plastic bags out with me when I take my dog for a walk. It's nice to hear that things are actually been done about dog fouling!

    Cat owners are the ones that they should clamp down on. They let their animals leave their deposits all over the place!

    I always pick up after my dog and it really does annoy me when I see other owners haven't picked up expecially when it's right next to a bin but ouch £800 is a heck of a fine!

    I've read about people being fined £75 for not picking up so I wonder if there's more to this one?

    on that grime fighters they couldnt work out how there was a massive pile in bags behind a wall in a carpark so they set up cctv and caught the same man bagging his dogs poo and throwing it over the wall
    im sure he got fined over a £1000

    silly sod he,d already done the bad bit,why not just take it home
    seemed he,d been doing it for mths

    We have poo trees in Horsforth Hall Park!

    It amazes me that people bag it up then hang it from tree branches rather then carrying it home..

    We call them bats around here, I think people are trying to throw it into the undergrowth and it gets caught in the branchs:frown:

    to be honest it depends where a dog goes.

    on a playing field, sure its wrong.

    but in a wood????

    you see i find it far worse to walk around and see vile bags of dog poo slung all over.

    while if a dog does poo, its gone in a few days. but in bags, its there for years.

    its like the woods at rounday park. its only used by dog walkers. but its full of bags of poo and smells.

    It doesn’t depend on where the dog goes its where a child goes that counts as theyare the ones most likely to come into comtact with it. When my children were younger we wouldnt take them in the local park as it as it was covered with dog mess and at least 1 in 3 would come into contact with it, its 95% better now that most people bag it and take it home. Broken glass and empty beer cans are the problem nowadays the local park is the polish social club now.

    I don't pick up from deep wooded areas. On a path, or open space it's different but not in the deep undergrowth. Anyway, there'll be more fox poo there than anything else.

    Yeah, at least most dog owners show responsibility to owning a pet. Cat owners are the worse, I watched one the other day in my yard. It dug a hole, dumped in it, then had the audacity to cover it up.

    There are plenty of organic bins in Spain, so people could just get used to the culture of clearing up after their bulls, horses, dogs etc. Here, there is no such thing to encourage people do the same.
