Anti dog? Print E-mail
Wednesday, 06 September 2017 14:33
Once upon a time Britain was regarded as a nation of dog lovers. But now? In April last year a Northamptonshire council was the first to introduce on the spot fines for dog owners who failed to carry poo bags - and other councils soon followed. Canterbury Council in Kent is just one that is also intending to fine dog owners £80 if they are caught without at least 2 bags. It is proposed that council workers or police officers will have the power to stop anyone walking their dog in a public park or on a footpath and ask if they have sufficient bags. But how many bags are you supposed to carry at any one time? We agree wholeheartedly that owners must clear up after their dogs - although we deplore the common practice of leaving the bags beside the path or, even worse, hanging them from trees and bushes - but are these new measures not a little over the top? Further proof that we are increasingly anti dog: beaches that ban dogs and councils that ban people walking more than four dogs at one time on public land.
