I WAS walking along Sandstone Road, in Winstanley, the other day and I noticed that the council had recently erected a notice stating that there would be penalties for dog fouling.
But some ignorant owner had allowed their pet to drop their mess right beside it.
This is a blatant disregard for the council, the public and responsible dog owners.
These people who allow their dogs to leave their mess for everyone to step into should be made to remove it themselves. I am glad that people caught not cleaning up the muck will receive punishment – I just wish that everyone would get caught, rather than being missed.
