A hit squad of wardens is cleaning up Carlisle’s streets after it was revealed 560 complaints were made about dog fouling and more than 400 strays seized.
Have your say
Why has Denton Holme been omitted from this??
Having lived there for almost 20 years and walked my dog round the area for 13 years I find it amazing that it has not been included as the area is covered with the stuff!!
i have no solution to the 'where should dogs poop' debate but i am incresingly incenced by lanes and their entrances being fouled, almost every corner and stretch of road in belah has dog excrement on it im sorry but in this fine day and age i shouldnt have to walk my kids to school dodging what is ultimately the owners responsibility if my kids left live feaces in the street there would b uproar or if i over turned their nappies into the street but if its a dog its ok? i think not, it is completely unsanitary. and the law is completely pointless unless it can be enforced so while theres murderers on the streets lets leave the police etc actually doing their job while you put a nappy on your dogs backside!
Dog owners should be made to carry a dog licence and have personal liability insurance in place.This would safe-guard the general public at large and foster a culture of responsibililty.
