Dog mess


#1

Does anyone know how to bump dog mess up the council’s priority list?

In a 60 second walk down Gladiator St and onto Honor Oak Park this morning I passed 5 or 6 piles. It’s ludicrous.

Not the most insidious or harmful form of antisocial behaviour, granted, but keeping s*** off the street (cleaning and disincentivising) seems a pretty basic job for the council.

I’ve noticed that the problem in this area seems to be getting worse of late.

However, I think that it’s foxes, rather than dogs, who are the culprits. This year seems to have been a very good one for the fox population in the area around Blythe Hill Fields, and we’re experiencing the disgusting results.

Sadly, I think I’m becoming an expert. Smaller ones are foxes (and I agree these are on the rise) but others are clearly dogs.

Fair play to dog owners who pick up their dog’s shit because I could never bring myself to picking up a warm dog turd. Sooner walk off if no-one had noticed. And no, I don’t keep a dog.
