Yet again I feel compelled to write about dog owners allowing their pets to foul pavements on the Hawksworth Estate in Leeds.
There is another pile of this stuff outside my house again this morning. A few days ago it was someone with her pet Alsatian on Lea Farm Road. The grass roundabout and play area further up on Lea Farm Drive are frequently used for this purpose at the same time every day by the same people who can clearly see the signs forbidding it and who know children play on these areas. They MUST know that this stuff can cause blindness.
WNW Homes spend what must be huge amounts of money on brochures delivered to every household telling us all about “diversity” and “inclusion” but appear to do nothing about a real problem like this. The last time I saw a Council “dog control” van in the area it was parked in full view of the roundabout, thereby signalling a presence to everyone with a dog. Are they not allowed to monitor this more covertly because it might infringe the human rights of dog owners while the rest of us zig - zag across pavements trying to avoid the stuff? Why can’t they let their dogs do it in their own gardens? Utterly tiresome and, no, I’m not the one with the “problem”, you are: it’s called lack of consideration for other people on your part. Grow up and act responsibly.
