Polite message to dog owners

PLEASE can all dog owners clean up after their dogs when they have messed in a public place.
It is still unbelievable the number of irresponsible dog owners who allow their dogs to dirty and never clean up after them.
I regularly walk at The Knap and am still amazed at the amount of dog mess on the causeway. This is also the case at The Waterfront and many other places where children go in the town.
It is not only filthy but a public health risk. It is also a legal responsibility of dog owners to clean up after their dog. The medical profession can tell you about the toxocara worm contained in dog faeces, which can cause blindness in children.
