I went on a great walk today with the 4 legged children. It was great to get out during these weird days of social isolation, with lovely spring flowers and blue skies. But whilst wandering, I couldn’t help noticing Dog pooh.
As a dog owner I feel saddened that I may be thought of as being responsible for this mess by others seeing walking or cycling.
I pick up when our dogs need to do their business whether it’s on a path or in a field.
Why? I hear you ask.
Well, when on a path I obviously don’t want to have people have dog mess on the shoes. In fields, dog faeces can cause either Neosporosis cause abortions in cattle and Sarcocystosis which can cause neurological disease and death in sheep.
What I can’t understand is why people go to the trouble of picking up and bagging but then leaving on the path, or worse still throwing the bag in a hedge or tree.
