When are people finally going to get it into their heads that if you own a dog it is your responsibility to clear up after it?

As we now lead up to district council elections, the overwhelming response we receive on the doorstep or via email or telephone is residents utter disgust at the irresponsible people who do not clean up after their dogs.

There is absolutely no excuse for it, if you own a dog, pick up its mess.

There is a particular problem in my own ward of Suffield Park, rest assured if I find out who the few irresponsible owners are in my ward I will report them, given the evidence we will prosecute you.

It shouldn't need to come to that, if you have any self respect or pride in where you live. Pick it up.
