Take your dog poo home with you

Mill Hill is a wonderful place. It has fantastic green spaces, many of which have been mentioned in this blog. There is one aspect of these that drives me to distraction. That is the selfish and disgusting behaviour of a small minority of dog owners who seem to think that the poo their pooches leave is someone elses problem. This morning we did the Darlands Nature reserve walk, starting and finishing on Burtonhole Lane. Our little walking group enjoyed the brisk and bracing wind and cloudy skies, in stark contrast to yesterday's amazing blue skies.

What greeted us as we crossed the fields was this truly disgusting spectacle.

It is bad enough that someone left poo hanging around, but to pick it up, put it in a bag and hang it on a signpost is truly horrible. What sort of a person thinks this sort of behaviour is OK? Poo is bad enough, but to leave it in a plastic bag hanging on a post shows a complete and brazen disregard for the fellow citizens of Mill Hill, the environment (as plastic is a major eco problems) and for the landowners, who ultimately will have to deal with the mess.

Be warned. If I catch you doing this, I will photograph you and name and shame you and to hell with your rights to privacy. Learn to behave like a decent citizen and to respect those who you share this amazing neighbourhood with.
