Plea to dog owners

Friday, November 17, 2017 - 11:24

From Elliott Emsley, St Helens:

To all dog owners. I moved to the Island for its naturalpeace and beauty.

I often walk on St Helens beach and Bembridge beach.

Instead of enjoying the sights, the sound of the waves andthe seabirds I have to keep my eyes on the ground to avoid dog droppings.

Dog owners allow their dogs to run free and are sometimesout of their sight when they relieve themselves.

Others are aware of what their dog is doing but simply walkon and leave the mess unattended.

Don’t they realise that many of us, including children, walkon the beach and don’t expect to navigate our way through a dog toilet.

Is it too much to ask that you abide by the law and carrydog poo bags to pick up your mess so that we can all enjoy the beauty aroundus?
