- How bad is Dog Fouling where you are?
Bloody nightmare, especially after the snow melted. My kids wnet out to play after the snow melted in our close and within 10 mins the little'un had ridden his trike through one turd and then I know not how or where 10mins later the older one comes back stinking of dog poo as well! How I cursed all dog owners… Local woods are just as bad, get dog poo strike more times than not. Same when I took the children up to Ashridge, sh*te everywhere. HOW I HATE IT WITH A PASSION!!!!! And breathe…Posted 8 years agojojoA1Member
I have always wanted to go over to the local football field/playing area and put little cocktail stick flags in each and every canine faecal deposit with "Filthy dog owner!" written on it.
It might illustrate how much of the literal crap there is everywhere and make people think twice. I swear if I did it there would be so many little flags, at least one per square metre, the field would look like a miniature re-enactment of Gettysburg or some other enormous field battle.Posted 8 years agomdbMember
The bridleway that runs behind our house in Brighton is known as "Dog Sh*t Alley". Its a disgrace. I've stopped taking my two kids along it after one fell over and landed in the stuff. Not to mention getting it all over your shoes or bike.
I'm thinking of making signs at each end of it: "Warning: you are now entering dog shit alley. Please tread carefully."Posted 8 years agozaskarMember
None here I hope -well I'm in the kitchen!
Bristol? occassionally in the run down areas where cycle lanes go through.
Personally I find horse poop worse on the cycletrack to Bath on the bridges where they just cover the bridge fully so walkers or cyclists have no choice to walk through it! 😈Posted 8 years agolollipopMember
On the lane where I live we have a phantom poo bagger that all the neighbours are on high alert trying to catch in action, but so far no luck.
I like the idea of the putting cocktail stick flags in the offending turds. It would be gross to do, but maybe you're onto something. However I suspect it would only be a matter of time before an article appeared in the local paper complaining about littering!Posted 8 years agomidgebaitMember
Somehow people around our area seem to have expected dog s#it to magically disappear if it was in snow. Now the snow's gone it's everywhere.
There are two sorts of dog-owners. One sort, let's call them people, pick up their dog sh#t. The other sort, for the sake of argument let's call them scum, don't! Perhaps if it was posted through their letter box I presume it would happen less often.Posted 8 years ago
loads around where I live in Bristol, same as everyone else really, its the minority of **** ignorant people who don't bother and within a short period of time its everywhere.
Makes no sense to me, as ultimately you are going to end up walking in it.
Saying that if my dog shits in the woods and its not on the trail I leave it there as it makes no sense to me to bag it, bin it, and then wait for it to get shipped halfway around the world to go in a landfill.Posted 8 years agowest kipperMember
About half of my postal round comprises of 300 or so houses on a run down council estate. Nearly everyone has a big fierce dog, typically a rotweiller, that they let crap wherever.Posted 8 years ago
When the recent snows melted what was weeks of dogs**t, stratified in two dimensions within the snow layers suddenly melted into one great mass covering every-f**king-thing, paths, grass, paving, just everywhere.

A couple of years ago I ran over a frozen horse poop. Nearly had me off my bike – it was like hitting a block of reinforced concrete.
I did get an explanation from an acquaintance about the dog poop in bags. This is on a local urban mixed use path. The theory he had was that there were no bins anywhere (true) and that people are employed to pick up rubbish along the path ( true) so by bagging the poop and then hanging it on a tree the litter pickerups could collect it easily and he did not hae to carry it home.. Quite frequently someone hangs a carrier bag up and all the poop bags go into that so obviously many people think that way.
Load of poop if you ask me but that is why these people seemed to do it.Posted 8 years ago
