Wirral dog owners are damned if they do or don't dispose of pets' mess properly
1:30pm Tuesday 5th March 2013 in Letters
TO the writer of "When did this practice become acceptable?" (Globe Mailbox, February 20).
So now dog-owners are now being damned if they don't dispose of their pets' mess properly (and rightly so) and damned if they do, which (like the contents of the bin you returned to sniff while your poor dog stood there waiting to complete its walkies) is complete rubbish.
Would the letter-writer like to suggest an acceptable alternative to dumping bags of pet waste in bins which are already used to dispose of dirty nappies and worse?
I know, let's pass a law to make dogs wear nappies; although then you would no doubt spend some of your spare time standing around and sniffing domestic bins instead.
I sincerely hope your own dog is as unjudgemental as the rest of its species, otherwise I reckon it probably regards you with ill-concealed contempt.
To coin a phrase ... something needs to be done to combat the menace of people who stand around sniffing bins when they could be doing something useful to improve their local environment.
