Sick of the dog mess in town


May I through your column express my utter disgust and frustration at the repeated dog fouling on the corner of Broadway/Porterhouse Road junction. Not a day goes by without a fresh deposit being left there.

I have a young daughter and I have lost count the number of times I have had to scrub my pram wheels because of this.

My family and I moved from Waingroves to Ripley just over a year ago and I have to say I am stunned at the amount of dog mess I see on Broadway and surrounding areas.

Do Ripley dog owners not have any conscience?

Do they think someone else cleans it up?

This is repeated offenders, not stray dogs, just irresponsible, lazy dog owners that think piles of dog mess on our pavements are acceptable.

Well dog owners be warned, I am armed and dangerous with my camera and I will shame you into cleaning up after your smile.

I will send all photo’s of all offenders to the editor of this newspaper and to the dog warden.

Just for the record, we have two dogs of our own and are proud to clean up after them !
