Saw a great one this morning. A dog (presumably) had curled one out slap bang in the middle of a small side gated entrance to our local church.
vile, what is wrong with some people.
Dogs that are allowed to roam free can be a threat to public safety and reduce the wildlife conservation value of a wood; they will seek out and worry deer
I am genuinely surprised that this is a concern, as I thought it was a well known fact that the (out of control) deer population in the UK is having severe impact on the UK wild life and fauna. To the point where woodland managers are hiring deer stalkers to try and keep them under control, which isn't cheap!
the fact they will need to pay for the bins to be emptied has no bearing on it
Most woods are commercial concerns, so if dog shit impacted the crop then the land owners would stop it happening pretty quickly. As the money involved is pretty large, especially if the landowner is also harvesting as he doesn't have to pay any tax on the income.
where do they say that? google search "woodland habitat dog fouling" and you get as the top hits
Yes, that particular search does get that; but if you tweak the search you can find alternative advice. So all it proves is anyone can find 'expert advice' on the internet to validate their own point of view.
If the FC say stick it and flick it, then that is what I will do on the land they manage.
