Malicious Faecal Distribution - It Isn't Always The Dog!

Let's face it, dogs frequently get a bad name. Evidence of failure to clean up annoys others and is a clear breach of the law.
What if it isn't a dog? What if it's a human? Is that covered by relevant legislation?
We thank Operative JK for bringing this one to our attention.
In the appropriately named Nob Hill, New Mexico, a female jogger has been giving dogs a bad name. Unaware of the existence of CCTV, she has been jogging down an alley and engaging in an act, which the complainant describes as "malicious faecal distribution".
I love the observation that he has yet to go to the police as he feels that they won't take the (faecal) matter seriously!
In some ways, we salute this lady and thank her for proving that dogs are frequently of higher reasoning than humans, after all, dogs can't carry bags!

A Recycling Project?

We know that many people have discovered different ways to recycle dog excrement.
I'll leave our followers and readers to decide if this was, indeed, an idea, which could catch on!

Cornwall, Dog Fouling and Eviction!

Porthtowan is a quiet place, not known for problems. That said, we thank Operative ML and, of course, the West Briton for letting us know differently.

A dispute arose, the police were involved and Adam Semmens Pearce, 31, of West Cliff, Porthtowan, pleaded guilty at Truro Magistrates' Court to using threatening behaviour towards Daniel O'Brien between April 5 and 8 at Porthtowan.

Alison May, for the Crown Prosecution Service, said there had been difficulties over the cleaning of the mess from a dog belonging to Pearce's girlfriend, who also lived in the same block of flats. Mr O'Brien had sent her a note but had no response and raised the problem with the letting agent.

Mr Pearce then showed Mr O'Brien a letter from the agent saying the dog might have to be removed from the premises. Later he threatened to enter Mr O'Brien's flat and "tear him to pieces".

And all this for the sake of not cleaning up!

I find myself asking what the problem is in an otherwise quiet area of North Cornwall. Why is it providing the blog with such a rich source of material? I don't know but I continue to fear that Cornwall will sink under the weight (of complaints!).

If you are connected with Cornwall and have any views or information, please feel free to comment and let us know, we are here to advise and help!

Cornwall Heaves Again!

Polbreen Lane has featured on this blog before, see here.
I have just been back to Cornwall and am able to report that the same streets are still flowing! I went out for a gentle stroll in the sun and happened to have my camera with me.
I was not at all surprised to see that Polbreen Lane is still awash with the benign substance referred to here before, i.e. horse dung!
While I am somewhat shameless in my conduct, I was a little taken aback as a lady rounded the corner while I was making sure I had the best angle on said substance. Madam, I apologise for any distress caused!

Polbreen Lane leads into Whitworth Close (named after a much distinguished, local family). I saw a true act of kindness in that Close. Somebody had left out a plastic tub full of water for animals to drink from. Very kind in baking hot weather!
Was that act of kindness appreciated? Well, possibly but is it reasonable to repay such kindness to animals by leaving a massive pile of dog faeces right by the plastic tub as pictured below? Need I comment further?

The Rejection of Kindness
As an aside, I went for a walk along the pathway by the Victoria Gardens in Truro. I can only say that somebody in Truro has a dog the size of an elephant and no bags for clearing up!
Thank you, Cornwall, we salute you!
