Dog fouling being tackled with patrols
Article Written By: Skegness Standard
Dog fouling across East Lindsey is being tackled by joint patrols between the council and police.
The patrols regularly take place in Wainfleet, Skegness, Spilsby, Horncastle and Louth.
East Lindsey District Council's Dog Warden Sue Farenden: "The joint patrols are ideal for tacking this important issue as PCSOs are at the heart of their community so already have access to local groups and people and are aware of local issues – including dog fouling."
"We need people to give us information about offenders so that we can find out who they are and deal with them appropriately – we need descriptions of people and dogs and the times and routes when they are walking," she added.
"It is unacceptable that there is this minority of dog owners who have total disregard for their neighbours by not cleaning up after their pets."
