Ruining our countryside

MAY I propose a radical suggestion to lazy dog owners – don’t pick up your dog’s mess!

At least, don’t pick it up, place it carefully in a plastic bag, then hang it on a bush, drop it in someone’s recycling bin etc.

If it is really too much of a trial to you to take it to the nearest bin designated for the purpose, leave it in situ, so that the rain can remove it naturally.

I am fed up with seeing trees and bushes festooned with plastic bags of dog excrement, usually way out of reach to be removed as a result of having been thrown up there.

You clearly think you are doing your duty by poop scooping – instead, you are ruining the beautiful countryside in which you are exercising your pet.
