DURING a recent visit to Pencoedtre Park walking the dog, I was absolutely appalled at the amount of dog mess I spotted.

As it's a park for children to run and enjoy themselves in, the irresponsible dog owners have no respect for other people's health.

As a responsible dog owner I always carry doggie bags with me, pick it up and place in receptacles (which are not always available) or take it home with me.

Where are the wardens to catch these people?

On a recent walk in Black Weir in Cardiff my dog went off to do her duty and before I had time to pick it up I had wardens tapping me on the shoulder making sure that I was going to pick it up and telling me that if I was to ignore it there would be an instant £100 fine.

Barry has become a disgrace.
