Dog fauling in Stroud fined with £1,350
Dog owners are being warned to pick up their dog’s mess after one of them was fined with over £1.350 a £525 fine and £826.50 court costs.
The incident took place in Tilsdown, Dursley earlier this year. The members of community services admit that dog fouling has turned to be a serious problem and are glad for the result of the issue. The council’s animal welfare officer and a council neighbourhood warden arranged evening patrols in the Kingshill area of Dursley to try to catch dog owners who were failing to clean up after their beloved pets. Stroud District Council’s animal welfare officer said there are many complaints about dog fouling to the councils and unless people help them, including witness statements, it results difficult to deal with the problem.
Anyone with a complaint about dog fouling should call the council on 01453 754478 or visit www.stroud.gov.uk/reportit
