Can I just point out that I do not mind dogs that much – I mean over the years I have been attacked by Rottweilers and have had to put up with my fair share of splashing dogs in my time however I do not hold anything against them (especially my crotch and on one memorable occasion my sons face).
However I was out for a walk along the Kelvin the other day and could not believe the amount of plastic bags full of shite that were discarded in the bushes next to the river.Dog owners picking up dog poo is a good thing – I cannot count the amount of times I have had to scrape the stuff off my shoe or even when climbing down the banks the stuff has got on my hands or something so when the new legislation came into force fining folk for not bagging and binning the stuff I was pretty happy. Problem is bagging the stuff does not seem to be a problem with some folk, taking it home and binning it is.
It appears what folk have now got into the habit of doing is taking there wee bag of shite and hanging it places out of reach of kids eyes (it makes them blind) – how thoughtful. It is obviously not just the odd person doing this as at one point on my wander I came across a mega shite bag..
This was a bag which was filled with wee bags of shite – obviously this bag looks official enough that folk decided that it would be picked up by someone official – sadly I do not think Glasgow City Council employs an official shite bag picker upper.
Or do they?
I can feel a freedom of information request coming on!
