IS THERE TOO MUCH DOG POO ON THE STREETS OF OLD KILPATRICK
Let’s discuss… does Old Kilpatrick have too much DOG POO on the paths we walk?
I’m glad this has been brought to my attention by other residents in the village. Why not talk about it because it sure does make me cross when my child walks in dog poo or anyone for that matter. I had this very experience opposite the school at the bus stop this very week and today I heard of two more children being covered in poo outside of the Church, where the school children gather for their group walks into school.
Let the Residents have their say!
We are looking to hear from you and discuss in a positive manner about if there is an issue on your street related to this very headline?
There is a poll on our Facebook page, get involved and let us know if you have a dog poo problem in your street/area. www.facebook.com/oldkilpatrick/
West Dunbartonshire Council
From what I have experienced personally the council do try to keep things clean to the best of their resources but I think this boils down to the dog owner who don’t lift their dog’s mess.
Of course, it’s not all dog owners, I see plenty of people lifting poo. Most people have bags in their pockets but if you do run low on bags for the dog poo remember the council can provide bags if need be.
A disaster could happen!
I grew up with a boy who lost his eye because of a little drop of dog poo from his shoe that touched his finger and got rubbed into his eye whilst playing. This could happen to a local kid.
