Inexcusable dog excrement

Reported in the Dog fouling category anonymously at 15:44, Thu 17 August 2017

Sent to East Hertfordshire District Council 1 minute later

Hard to believe that the owner did not know their (obviously large) dog was defaecating right in the middle of the pavement, beside a crossing. Okay, these things do happen but if you have run out of poo bags then surely you find a nearby stick and move the excrement into the kerb to avoid people walking in it. Although the majority of dog owners clear up after their animals, there is a chronic problem with dog fouling in and around Ware Road but to simply leave it slap bang in the centre of a footpath is disgusting and anti-social.

  • The response from the council was prompt and helpful, saying the report would be passed to the appropriate dept., however when I passed by the following day the excrement had clearly been walked and cycled through and there were just dried remnants visible over a wider area. Urgh!!! Presumably, there would have been little left to see if/when anyone had gone to check.
