Huffington Post Highlights A Bristol Campaign

We thank Huffington Post for highlighting this poster campaign in Bristol and we also thank Operative JH for bringing it to our attention!

The campaign has not been without controversy. The image of a child consuming faeces is shocking and enough to get the message across to any rational person.
That said, the article links to a report from Spain, where a local authority has been returning dog faeces to owners as a "lost and found" item. While they use couriers, we have long speculated regarding the possibility of the benefits of faeces through the letter box (illegal, so don't do it!).
I urge you to watch this video, it certainly makes a point and the return of the faeces shows that the local authority is not to be messed with! I love the battery operated piles of faeces following owners! The commentary could be from a Monty Python sketch!

Post Code Lottery - Not Just Health Care!

Health care isn't the only thing, which appears to be subject to a postcode lottery. The BBC points out that action against dog fouling varies from area to area.
It appears that Liverpool is where you are most likely to face action if you fail to clear up.
Thank goodness the BBC has discovered this for us. I had often been unable to sleep as I mulled this over in my mind. No wonder my shoes are frequently covered. I don't live in Liverpool!
The following video is really informative. I must also observe that, if we take the advice of the council operative to pick up, he will be unemployed. The age old issue; do we fail to comply and employ or comply and wreck the economy? You decide!

BBC News Highlights The Issue

The BBC has really pitched in on the subject of dog fouling and we thank the BBC for the material displayed here!
Interestingly, this site can really claim to be ahead of the game on each of the tactics suggested.
Shame People

Get The Public To Help
Send In The Poover
Go On A Stakeout

Use A Harness
Introduce DNA Testing
Take Direct Action
It has to be observed that, here at Dog Fouling And Red Rubber Bands HQ, we have already highlighted all of these approaches at various times but we thank the BBC for coming on board and we urge you to read their article here.

Cornwall Strikes/Heaves Again And Revives White Dog Poo!

As many of our regular readers will know, Cornwall and, particularly, St Agnes in Cornwall have frequently featured on this blog. Examples can be seen here and here.
St Agnes has come to the fore again. I don't like to single out any area as it could devalue property but, Polbreen Lane, you know where you are!
A concerned resident of Polbreen Lane has put this sign on a garage door:

I can understand why! The following deposit lies in the hedge just down the lane:

Further up the lane, we see some "benign substance":

Indeed, the village is awash! Many say that St Agnes is an old style village, caught in a time warp. As if to prove this, on the approach path to the Beacon, there was some white dog poo from the seventies!

Once again, Cornwall has it all!
