Park hijacked by irresponsible dog owners
9:30am Wednesday 27th June 2012 in Letters
RECENTLY my five-year-old granddaughter and I went for a stroll on Paddington Meadows only to have to turn back almost immediately by the amount of dog mess we stood in.
Dog fouling has now reached epidemic proportions on Paddington Meadows. Informed individuals know how dangerous to health dog faeces can be to everybody. particularly children.
Do these dog owners care?
Responsible dog owners must be ashamed and embarrassed by the irresponsible behaviour of others whose wilful disregard for the health and safety of the general public tarnish the reputation of all dog owners.
Something clearly needs to be done.
This beautiful public facility is being hijacked by anti-social types yet again. I am astonished that for years there have been no signs regarding dog fouling on the meadows or indeed bins for dog owners to use.
Bins may prevent the disgusting practice of hanging dog mess in plastic bags on trees and hedges.
Why do they do this? How can we change this awful situation for the benefit of all?
I would appreciate readers views on this.
