Clean it up! - POSTBAG

Dear Sir,

Pocklington is a lovely market town, but it is ruined by the amount of uncaring, irresponsible, dirty dog owners.

The pavements all over town are covered in dog mess. On Victoria Road, there is dog mess outside people’s front doors.

I did confront one man (middle-aged) and he told me, and I quote “If it f***ing well bothers you, pick it up yourself.” Is this the attitude to take?

For once, it is not the teenagers, but the older generation.

Can’t something be done about the mess?

Yours sincerely,

A responsible dog owner
