Re: Trash and the poop dog wars

Hi

Austerity has meant that many Councils no longer have the money to deal with the problem.

There is a simple way of providing the funds

An annual Dog Tax of £100 a year per dog, this tax would include Insurance so dogs are not a burden on the NHS.

I have to pay for a fishing licence, so why not a dog licence?

Dogs don't use the NHS.

... so why not a dog licence?
That was tried - and it didn't work. Cost more to administer than it was worth in revenue.

Mups the bloke is intimidating .
I always go out with a camera but have yet to see him he has taken to going out very early ( due to my Campaign on the village Facebook Site ) sometimes his children take the dogs out they are every bit as ignorant as their Papa.
I donít ( thank goodness ) live close to them
I rang the council . There are only two dog wardens in the country of wiltshire - and wiltshire is huge .
I had emailed them previously .
You have to catch them in the act .
You canít take pictures of children ( not unless you really want to be in deep doo dah )
The council woman was hopeless she said they only come out if they have sufficient evidence .She suggested I re email them I said why do t you just pass on my complaint she said they donít do that !
Maybe I will send them some pictures of the poop ,
I have emailed the Parish council and urged others to do so .
The people who live near this man want a peaceful ( if smelly life ) so what to do ?

Thank you for the link .
It says that local councils have a duty to clean it up I will contact them again and see what they have to saY about this .

No Swimmy, I really disagree with that. Simply because the only ones that suffer when it comes to paying fees for dogs, are the dogs themselves. How many irresponsible people will pay the licence fee when they first buy a puppy, only to think that the following year they either cannot afford it or it is a waste of money and the dog is a ruddy nuisance and no way are they going to fork out £100 every year for them. Next thing they are receiving letters to say Pay up or else! so innocent dog gets dumped !
Dog licences have never worked.
Microchipping was a good thing.

Re: Trash and the poop dog wars

Rubbing their noses in the poop would be the best deterrent .

Re: Trash and the poop dog wars

I have to say that where I live I haven't seen any dog poo in the last 30 years.... yet 30 or more people pass my house when walking their dog each day.

It isn't the dogs fault, or the council, it is objectionable people who show no respect for others.
If they have a problem picking up their dogs mess perhaps they shouldn't own a dog, but I am grateful that i live among people who do show respect for their neighbours.

Even my cats now come inside if they need to go and cat litter trays are always available for them! I just wish somebody would train the local foxes!

However in one place plagued by dog poop he made out of an old wheelie bin a dog poop disposal bin .
The residents were delighted and the poop situation improved .
But then ....
The council made them take it away saying he had no licence to put up a dog poop bin .
You really couldnít make it up !

You have to remember that the Council is where the morons rule. I mean if you need a dickhead urgently, ring the Council, they have plenty on their books.

Are we sure it's dog crap? It could always be a BLM mob that started to melt in the heat!

Re: Trash and the poop dog wars

There are signs up all around here stating that it is an offence not to pick up dog poo but many people take no notice. Same goes for the sign saying dogs should be on a lead.

Re: Trash and the poop dog wars

Touch wood itís not that bad here, or where we go I should say.

I have often wondered if private companies could act for the local authorities, with the fines resulting from successful prosecutions, being payment for their services

Iím sure such companies would be more than keen, and would surely offer a Bonus scheme to their employees.

I bet such companies would create lots of animosity but, apart from the Dog pounds filling upÖ.. Iím sure our streets, parks etc would be cleaner places
